Ben Harper — Fight Outta You lyrics

They'll look you in the eyes and stone you
Then turn and disown you, don't you let them take the fight outta you
They'll walk all over your name 'til they find someone else to blame, don't let them take the
Fight outta you
Secrets hide their lies inside hidden alibis, don't let them take the fight outta you
They put the world on a hook, it's worse every time I look
Don't let them take the fight outta you

I would rather take a punch than not give you a shot
I'd rather find out who you are than who you're not
Should have known better than to mistake business for love
Should have known better than to mistake a fist for a glove

It will be in your honor 'til you're not needed any longer, don't let them take the fight
Outta you
Don't believe the headlines, check it for yourself sometimes, don't let them take the fight
Outta you
The lies you live become you, the love you lose it numbs you, don't let them take the fight
Outta you
They say that you've arrived but that's just a high-class bribe, don't let them take the fight
Outta you

There's always someone younger, someone with more hunger, don't let them take the fight outta
You
They'll say you're the one and only
Then straight up leave you lonely, don't let them take the fight outta you
Like a transplant-patient waiting for a donor, don't let them take the fight outta you
Like a half empty balloon after a party in the corner, don't let them take the fight outta you
