Hmmmm, oh

Too much of anything can make you sick
Even the good can be a curse
Makes it hard to know which road to go down
Know when too much can get you hurt

Is it better, is it worse
Are we sitting in reverse
It's just like we're going backwards (backwards)
I know where I want this to go
Driving fast but let's go slow
What I don't want to do is crash, no

[Pre-chorus:]
Just know that you're not in this thing alone
There's always a place in me that you can call home
Whenever you feel like we're growing apart
Let's just go back, back, back, back, back to the start

[Chorus:]
Anything that's worth having is sure enough worth fighting for
Quiting's out of the question
When it gets tough gotta fight some more
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love [x3]
If it's worth having it's worth fighting for

Now everyday ain't gonna be no picnic
Love ain't no walk in the park
All you can do is make the best of it now
Can't be afraid of the dark

[Pre-Chorus]
Just know that you're not in this thing alone
There's always a place in me that you can call home
Whenever you feel like we're growing apart
Let's just go back, back, back, back, back to the start

[Chorus]
Anything that's worth having is sure enough worth fighting for
Quiting's out of the question
When it gets tough gotta fight some more
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love [x3]
If it's worth having it's worth fighting for

I don't know where we're heading
I'm willing and ready to go
We've been driving so fast
We just need to slow down and just roll

[Chorus]
Anything that's worth having is sure enough worth fighting for
Quiting's out of the question
When it gets tough gotta fight some more
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love [x3]
If it's worth having it's worth fighting for

We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love [x3]
If it's worth having it's worth fighting for

Song facts

"Fight for This Love" is a song performed by British singer Cheryl Cole from her debut studio album, 3 Words. "Fight for This Love" is Cole's first solo single outside of girl band Girls Aloud following 20 top-ten singles with the group. It was written by an American team consisting of Steve Kipner, Wayne Wilkins and Andre Merrit with the demo being sung by Merrit. Cole stated that though the demo had come to her with male vocals she "knew instantly it was a single", having "connected with the song so well".

In the United Kingdom, "Fight for This Love" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart. It sold 134,000 copies in one day beating the previous record held by Cole's X Factor protégé Alexandra Burke with the song "Bad Boys" which sold 187,100 over a seven-day span. The final first week sales totaled 292,000 copies beating the 213,000 that Girls Aloud's debut single, "Sound of the Underground" sold back in 2002. The single remained at number one for two weeks and consequently went on to become the best selling single of the year up to that point. By the end of 2009 it was declared the fourth best-selling single of the year, and 29th best selling of the decade (2000s). On 14 May 2010, just over six months after release, the single was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and earned Cole a nomination for Best British Single at the 2010 BRIT Awards, which she had previously won at the 2009 BRIT Awards with Girls Aloud for their single, "The Promise". However, she lost out to "Beat Again" by former X Factor runners-up JLS.
