Lyrics Edit

I fought so hard for your heart, on the way down
And I thought that I could save you from destruction

But I was never in contro-o-ol, never in control
Fighting another war
No I was never in contro-o-ol, never in control
Fighting another war

Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Now I ain't boxing anymore
I'm letting go and it's beautiful
Fist fighting a sandstorm
Fist fighting a sandstorm
Is a losing battle
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Fighting a sandstorm
Fighting a sandstorm
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
But I won't fight it anymore
I'm letting go and it's beautiful

I was hurting, I couldn't let go, I couldn't leave you
And I told myself, though it was hell, that we'd push through

But I was never in contro-o-ol, never in control
Fighting another war
No I was never in contro-o-ol, never in control
Fighting another war

Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Now I ain't boxing anymore
I'm letting go and it's beautiful
Fist fighting a sandstorm
Fist fighting a sandstorm
Is a losing battle
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Fighting a sandstorm
Fighting a sandstorm
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
But I won't fight it anymore
I'm letting go and it's beautiful

But I was never in contro-o-ol, never in control
Fighting another war
No I was never in contro-o-ol, never in control
Fighting another war

Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Now I ain't boxing anymore
I'm letting go and it's beautiful
Fist fighting a sandstorm
Fist fighting a sandstorm
Is a losing battle
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Fighting a sandstorm
Fighting a sandstorm
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
Was fist fighting a sandstorm
But I won't fight it anymore
I'm letting go and it's beautiful
