THE FIGHT

"Why the name I Am Fighting? We believe in finding a passion in life and giving that passion all you've got...for us, that passion is music. When you care about something so deeply you want to fight for it, never give up, always improve, no matter what blocks your path."

Biography

I Am Fighting formed in early 2008. Its members each had a unique style of their own that came from years of developing their craft. It made for great musical chemistry.

I Am Fighting spent years carefully writing songs that they truly believed in. Songs that were simple and catchy, yet powerful and meaningfully deep. They recorded their First EP, "All The Ways We Can", in 2010 and released it with an assault of shows in northern NJ...quickly developing a beautiful and supportive local fan base.

2011 was filled with amazing opportunities for I Am Fighting. After placing in the top 5 of 700+ bands in the break contest for bamboozle they played venues like School of Rock, The Stone Pony, Gramercy Theatre, and ultimately Bamboozle itself. Opening up for Ryan Cabrera at Mexicali Live and Neon Trees at the Six Flags Arena it seems like the sky is the limit for I Am Fighting.

After a great year, they went back in the studio to record their second EP, "Not Afraid." Proving they were "not afraid" to try something different and experiment with a darker and less polished sound while still keeping true to their catchy song writing.

I Am Fighting won't stop until their music is heard by all. Join the fight! Spread the music!

Lyrics

Mesmerized

Written By: Joseph Gehrmann

I had a lot of doubts and i asked the questions i saw your eyes
were left, blank, with no answer and "please" i asked you "please"

and now i stand here before you without a chance or a pride
i'm begging you to just let go and let me have you

eating out the palm my hand, you hide it
and i know your wanting more
and why is it that you never care it will always be only you i adore

Cause baby.

I FORGOT TO KISS YOU BUT I CAN'T FORGET HOW I'M MESMERIZED
EVERY SECOND YOUR EYES HIT MY EYES
WHY DO I CONSTANTLY MISS YOU?
I'M NOT SCARED I'M TERRIFIED
CAUSE WHEN THE TRUTH HITS, YOU DESERVE GOODBYE

i know you never bothered or touched upon, you shallow the pain til its gone
and all that i swore was for nothing.
so "be strong" (she said) "Move on, move on" (she said)

this is the last song i'll write you.
i poison my name and you try, you try to see me more than just selfish
and forget, i pray you forget, but one day ill be

eating out the palm of your hands, i'll hide it
but you'll know i'm wanting more.
i hope i stay sleepless at night as it haunts me, it was you i ignored

I FORGOT TO KISS YOU BUT I CAN'T FORGET HOW I'M MESMERIZED
EVERY SECOND YOUR EYES HIT MY EYES
WHY DO I CONSTANTLY MISS YOU?
I'M NOT SCARED I'M TERRIFIED
CAUSE WHEN THE TRUTH HITS, YOU DESERVE GOODBYE

cause im here and im gone and im gone again
and youre here and youre gone and youre gone again
i swear that its right but its wrong you said
and all of our trust, yes it's gone again

i fall to my knees just to try and i try again
i scream it aloud "come! come back to me!"
and its right, please its right, but it's wrong you said
and i sing it aloud "chose and make it me"

I FORGOT TO KISS YOU BUT I CAN'T FORGET HOW I'M MESMERIZED
EVERY SECOND YOUR EYES HIT MY EYES

WHY DO I CONSTANTLY MISS YOU?
I'M NOT SCARED I'M TERRIFIED
CAUSE WHEN THE TRUTH HITS, IT'S ME WHO BLACK INSIDE

Believe, Believe

I take it in, so I don't feel a thing.
It's not the pain but it's just the hurt you bring.
I hold and I hold and I hold... just to feel alive.

It's not the point cause it's just so bigger now.
Nothings left. As I take a look around.
I hold and I hold and I hold... just to feel.

And I just need a second to explain that I believe you are settling.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.
I just need you to untangle these guts you have so beautifully wrapped up.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.

I think too much. I rush all the words to say.
If for the thrill, I can and I will today.
I hold and I hold and I hold...cause it's all a lie.

I felt the lights but it's just so different now.
And nothings right, as I take a look around.
I hold and I hold and I hold... but nothings real.

And I just need a second to explain that I believe you are settling.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.
I just need you to untangle these guts you have so beautifully wrapped up.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.

And if you see, that all I'm waiting for and all I claim to be...
...is what you need in me.

And I just need a second to explain that I believe you are settling.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.

I just need you to untangle these guts you have so beautifully wrapped up.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.

And I just need a second to explain that I believe you are settling.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.
I just need you to untangle these guts you have so beautifully wrapped up.
And I just know I could give you more.
More than physical physical.

And if you see, that all I'm waiting for and all I claim to be...
...is what you need in me.

Ghost

Written By: Joseph Gehrmann

We've been fading away, like usually.
And all that i feel is the worst in me.
And all I can be is something less.
And all that I know seems like second best.
I told, I told. I'm so afraid.
It's all that you hear, its all that you hear
I told, I told. I'm so afraid.
I'm so afraid.

I CANT FALL APART. I GOT A PLAN.
YOU WON'T SEE THE WORLD THE WAY I CAN.
I AM JUST A GHOST INSIDE A MAN.

Cause we've been fading away, and openly.
And all that you see is the best in me.
And all that I think, I think so small.
It's never enough cause I want it all.
I know, I know. There's something wrong.
It's all that you hear, all that you hear.
I know I know. There's something wrong.
There's something wrong.

I CANT FALL APART. I GOT A PLAN.
YOU WON'T SEE THE WORLD THE WAY I CAN.
I AM JUST A GHOST INSIDE A MAN.
I CANT FALL APART. I GOT A PLAN.
YOU WON'T SEE THE WORLD THE WAY I CAN.
I AM JUST A GHOST INSIDE A MAN.

Breathe in to me. Breathe in to me. (4x)
(I know I know there's something wrong.
I'm shaking at the speech as I ask you why.
The days, they're unfortunate, I'm numb to the feelings as moments pass me by)

I CANT FALL APART. I GOT A PLAN.
YOU WON'T SEE THE WORLD THE WAY I CAN.
I AM JUST A GHOST INSIDE A MAN.
