Can't Fight

by Marc Petry
(Pennsylvania, United States)

Chorus (2x)
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t fight the shame
I can’t fight the shadows, and handle all this blame.
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t take this pain
Cause everything is happening, happening to me

Verse 1:
Yeah, let’s take a trip down memory lane,
and let’s try and figure out what caused all this pain.
It started when you first came into my life,
And I was always picturing that you would be my wife.
We were only teenagers at the time,
but I still couldn’t get you off of my mind.
There was times I thought that maybe you’d give me a chance,
whenever I saw you I swear it put me into a trance.
But then I found out that maybe I was just being a fool
I thought you were beautiful and at the time would do anything for you
But now I realized what you really did to me,
And now it’s time that I move on from you cause…


Chorus:
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t fight the shame
I can’t fight the shadows, and handle all this blame.
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t take this pain
Cause everything is happening, happening to me

Verse 2:
There was this one night where I talked to you for hours,
And I swear it made me feel like I had all these special powers
Thinking to myself like maybe this is my time,
to sweep in and make you finally become mine.
But it seemed like you were reading my mind,
Everytime I was getting closer you would go offline.
I remember the day that you finally told me you liked me,
and I still remember cause it made me so happy,
but it didn’t matter cause now everything’s changed
and now I Just gotta move on cause…

Chorus:
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t fight the shame
I can’t fight the shadows, and handle all this blame.
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t take this pain
Cause everything is happening, happening to me

Bridge:
And now I’m here singing this song
And still have you somewhere in the back of my mind
But I hope you here this cause this is where this all comes to an end,
Because I’m just going so crazy and now I, I, I.

Chorus: (Repeat to fade)
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t fight the shame
I can’t fight the shadows, and handle all this blame.
I can’t fight the music, and I can’t take this pain
Cause everything is happening, happening to me

its like your telling a story from start to end...usually songs are written mainly on the start OR end part of a situation... like a break up/make up...but the way you wrote it out takes skill...the rhythm is good too
