A reason to fight

~Saturday Stories~


You go to school, 
You come back
Five hours of homework 
In your backpack 
And you try to smile at Dad 
When he asks
How you're doing 
Cause you don't want him to know that

Life sucks at the moment 
And it all seems hopeless
And you're putting up a fight 
But don't remember what the point is 
And you're tired of the pain
And you're tired of the bruises 
And the pills in the cupboard 
Get more and more use now 
Might've not hit rock bottom
But it's worse than normal 
And you're trying to find a reason 
To live until tomorrow

Look up now, look up now

There's a reason to fight
There's a reason to hope 
There's always, always a reason to go on
There is Someone to hope in 
There is Someone to trust 
Not sayin' life will be perfect 
But it's better than what you've got 
There's a reason to fight 
Look up now, look up now

You go to school, 
You look around
Five hundred lost kids 
Milling about  
And you smile at Dad 
When he asks
How you're doing 
Cause you want him to know that

Life's awesome at the moment 
And it all seems hopeful 
And you're putting up a fight 
But you know what the point of is 
And you're tired of the pain
And you're tired of the bruises 
But you know the One 
Who'll help you stop using 
Might not be extremely happy
But it's better than normal 
Cause you've found a reason 
To live until tomorrow 
Look up now, look up now

There's a reason to fight
There's a reason to hope 
There's always, always a reason to go on
There is Someone to hope in 
There is Someone to trust 
Not sayin' life will be perfect 
But it's better than what you've got 
There's a reason to fight

Cause we've had our low spots 
We've all had our dark days 
We've all had our storms 
That didn't seem to pass away. 
We've all had our nightmares 
We've all had our hearts split 
We've all had a time 
When the devil seemed to win 
But. Now. We. Know.

There's a reason to fight
There's a reason to hope 
There's always, always a reason to go on
There is Someone to hope in 
There is Someone to trust 
Not sayin' life will be perfect 
But it's better than what you've got

There's a reason to fight 
There's a reason to hope 
There's always, always a reason to go on
There is Someone to hope in 
There is Someone to trust 
Not sayin' life will be perfect 
But it's better than what you've got 
There's a reason to fight
