I can meet you in the ring
Where the sweat and punches fly
I can meet you in the ring
Where one of us is bound to cry

Why do we fight?...

How can a love this pure and true
Have me falling through the ropes?
How can this love make me so cruel
To lose your faith to lose your hope?

Why do we fight?...

Let’s face up to the fact
That face down on the mat
Won’t solve this or anybody else’s fight
It’s not hard to figure out
There’s no victory in doubt

Why do we fight?...
