" Fight The Good Fight "

Songwriters: LEVINE, MIKE / MOORE, GIL / EMMETT, RIK


The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we're running out of time
Every day it seems much harder tellin' right from wrong
You got to read between the lines

Don't get discouraged, don't be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay

The Good Book says it's better to give than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothin' in my pockets I got nothin' up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart

Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
I am counting on you
You know what you've got to do

CHORUS:
Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It's your only way

All your life you've been waiting for your chance
Where you'll fit into the plan
But you're the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can

You think a little more money will buy your soul some rest
You'd better think of something else instead
You're so afraid of being honest with yourself
You'd better take a look inside your head

Nothing is easy, nothing good is free
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There's an answer in your heart

CHORUS

(I asked Her)
How do you spend the time
Between a leaf that falls
And when it meets the ground,
When the blue jay calls
For a mate to be found?
.
What do you do in that
Journey between Spring
And Autumn,
While catfish search
The bottom
Of lakes for eternity?
.
(Her answer)
Man can be so sad
While he ponders not his gifts
But what is yet to be had.
The same is true of Time,
A gift to be cherished...
Instead of spending it wondering
When he can reach his next goal,
He should look around
At all there is to be found
In the falling leaf's journey,
Or inside his own soul.
.
It depends on your
Point of view,
And how you spend
What you're given.
I smile as my breath
Becomes dew,
Sighing whispers that
Make leaves become
Driven.
.
There is no in-between...
There is only
What you choose
Not to be seen.
