I don't have much fight left in me

so when I don't change to fit you so that you can be comfortable and stay, please know that it isn't that I don't want to... it's that I shouldn't have to.  

And I've been fighting this fight my whole life,

taking on weight that ain't light

and it ain't like I did wrong so it ain't right that I'd have to lay down for you to walk on. 

I don't always want to be strong...

So if you need me to fight for you to prove that I care, prepare to be unsure. That life is done for.
