LYRICS

They will try to bring you down

Because they never tried

To do what you are doin, what you are doin

That don’t make ‘em right

 

It took me a while to see

That no choice could be wrong

Just do what makes me happy

What makes me happy

 

Even when the sky comes falling

Sky comes falling

I’ll fight, I’ll fight

I’ll fight against the wind

Even when the thunder’s frightening

I’m still smiling

I’ll fight against the wind

 

I’ll fight against the wind

I’ll fight against the wind

I’ll fight against the wind

 

Rules were built by other hands

They can be broken down

I know I can rebuild them

I can rebuild them

I’m the creator now

 

It took me a while to see

That my voice really counts

And I know I should use it

Know I should use it

Even when the sky comes falling

Sky comes falling

I’ll fight, I’ll fight

I’ll fight against the wind

Even when the thunder’s frightening

I’m still smiling

I’ll fight against the wind

 

I’ll fight against the wind

I’ll fight against the wind

I’ll fight against the wind

 

We won’t stop when they say so

We won’t stop when they say so

We won’t stop when they say so

We won’t stop when they say so

We won’t stop when they say so

We won’t stop when they say so

We won’t stop when they say so

I’ll fight against the wind

 

(ooh)

I’ll fight against the wind

(ooh)

I’ll fight against the wind

(ooh, ooh, ooh)

I'll fight against the wind

BEHIND THE SONG

This song was written soon after my move to California. I felt like I was “fighting” against these ideas of who I was “supposed” to be, versus who I wanted to be, as well as against the cultural paradigms I was surrounded by.

 

Growing up in a smaller town, I was largely surrounded by people who didn’t question the status quo, so following my own unique path was challenging at first. I realized that there’s nothing I’m “supposed” to do, and instead I could follow my own joy.

 

This is a song about having the courage to follow your dreams. It can also be interpreted as a call to activism, speaking your truth, or challenging the status quo.

  • Perhaps you are being called to have courage in the face of adversity. This is a reminder that you can overcome any challenge.

 

  • Pay attention to what brings you joy, and follow that, even if it doesn’t make sense to others.

 

  • Your voice is needed in this situation-- speak your truth!

 

  • Pay no mind to what other people think of your path--no one needs to understand it but you.

 

  • If you’ve been feeling called to be a voice for the voiceless, or take action for a good cause--now is the time to use your voice for good.

 

  • If you’ve been thinking of making a big move, or making a big career change, this is your sign to go for it and trust your calling.
