Just waking up in the morning
And the beat well
Quite honest with ya,
I ain't really sleep well
Ya ever feel like your train a thoughts been derailed?
That's when you press on lee nails
Half the population's just waitin to see me fail

    To me, this song is for someone who has had to struggle through everything life has thrown them. It represents how they have not given up on others, on a dream, or life itself. This song seems to be predominately for an athlete, however, it can be interpreted for someone who is constantly battling with life. Do not give up even when things are bad.

    It's simple. Don't give up, no matter how hard life gets you or how hard you've been tested, you need to keep going because fighting for your dreams will make them a reality. You need to fight until the referee rings the bell and keep pushing towards your goals.

    I think this song is about someone who goes through a lot of hard times in their life, like bullying and abuse, but the person does not give on himself or herself or on his life or her life. Instead, he or she keeps on fighting through his or her life to reach his or her goals and dreams. They stay strong and keep on working towards what they want to do in life, despite what everyone else says or does, even if they are judged because of their goals and dreams. This is a really inspirational song, and is defiantly one of my favorites!

    In my mind, this song talks about fighting through pressure, and struggle in general. Everyone encounters some type of struggle, which rips them apart, tortures them until there's no one there to support them, and they feel like giving up. But, this song's objective is to convince people to continue going, even with the "thirty rounds" of failure. "You really aint got it bad" is meant to remind you that failure isn't the worst thing in the world. The Fighter is trying to motivate us to leave behind our scars of the past, and pursue our dreams no matter the obstacles in our path. You're always faced with the option to give up, and the option to learn from your mistakes, and continue. It is an extremely motivational song, to take advantage of.

    this song is about life. it's using analogies about boxing and other sports, and if you look at the music vidio you'll see all that, but the song writer isnt thinking of this realy. he is thinking about life and hardships and getting through it, and people know that he's a fighter. he's fighting his demons, and those who persacut him, and he will win, and will not give up( till the refary rings the bell) this is a song about strienghth and hope, and rising above the darkness.

    I usually dislike mainstream music and hip hop, but I actually quite like this song. Its not annoying and it is oddly inspirational. I love how it's catchy as well. Makes me want to push myself to meet my goals. I love the "give me scars/give me pain" lyric. Very life driving.

    I think its about someone playing a professional sport and saying that its not as easy as it seems and they have to support kids and stuff just like anyone else.
