Sometimes it’s hard to write a love song when consumed by the horror of current events. So this is inspired by that… and conversations about that… and even conversations about not bringing politics into a love-themed event. All those conversations made this song better… more universal. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts.

But hey, to me, the personal has always been political and who am I to fight inspiration when it kindly strikes? And so… I do hope you dig.

I went with the Key of A. It feels hopeful, but allowed the needed tension for the bridge.

The stems are available with and without FX in the zips.

Verse: A / D / E7 / D-A
Chorus: D / E / A / D
D / E / A / E-D-A
Bridge: F#m / D / A / E

WORDS
As the world we’ve known
Comes crumbling down
Every truth attacked
With alternative facts
I wanna hide away
Find an escape
And I think I would
If it weren’t for you

You give me the reason
To fight
You give me
The inspiration
You give me
All the love in the world
Which gives me the strength
To fight, fight, fight

As the wrecking ball
Continues to strike
Pain takes over
More and more lives
I struggle with
Hopelessness
So I’ll hold you, love
Tighter and tighter

You give me the reason
To fight
You give me
The inspiration
You give me
All the love in the world
Which gives me the strength
To fight, fight, fight

To all the open-hearts and open-minds
Who reject demagogues
And believe in love
We will not live in fear
We will not let hate win
We will fight until the end
And I’ll have your back
If they come
I’ll have your back
I have your back
And I’ll have your back
When they come
I’ll have your back
I have your back

You give me the reason
To fight
You give me
The inspiration
You give me
All the love in the world
Which gives me the strength
To fight

You give me the reason
To fight
You give me
The inspiration
You give me
All the love in the world
Which gives me the strength
To fight, fight, fight.
