Go Down Fighting

One day I was feeling sorry for myself and took the luxury of wallowing in self pity for about five minutes. Then a voice in my head cut in and said "Shut the f**k up, asshole. You made your choices. If you're going to go down, go down fighting."

And I thought, "hey, that would make a good song." I hope you like it.

 

Too old
Too late
Missed my chance
Out of date
Must be foolish
Or naïve
Past my prime
Better leave

I hear them say that I can’t win
But if this is the end
I’ll go down fighting
I’ll keep swinging
In the silence
I’ll be singing
I go down fighting

Success
Passed me by
Not cause I
Didn’t try
Slowing down
Feeling pain
Can’t go through it
All again

But every time I want to quit
I say if this is it
I’ll go down fighting
I’ll keep swinging
In the silence
I’ll be singing
I go down fighting

Knock me down a thousand times
I’ll give it one more try
I’ll go down fighting

Out of touch
Out of time
Say I’m out
Of my mind
I’ve been hurt
Been misled
Still the dreams
In my head

Every time I get denied
Shout my battle cry
I’ll go down fighting

No quiet exit from the scene
I’ll stand my ground and scream
I’ll go down fighting
I’ll keep swinging
In the silence
I’ll be singing
I go down fighting
