    Default Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

    Below is some words that many people need to understand, ( including Me ). I remember in the 70,s
    Brewer & Shipley song ...It's everything you do it ain't nothing you did.

    These lyrics Jump out at me, and during these times where just covering up has become an art form, they appear to have a stronger meaning.

    Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

    You ain't gone far enough to say
    At least I tried
    You ain't worked hard enough to say
    Well I've done mine
    You ain't run far enough to say
    My legs have failed
    You ain't gone far enough
    You ain't worked hard enough
    You ain't run far enough to say
    It ain't gonna get any better

    Here is another song that jumps out.

    Ben Harper

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOLiguB_ZyY

    "Fight Outta You"

    They'll look you in the eyes and stone you
    Then turn and disown you, don't you let them take the fight outta you
    They'll walk all over your name 'til they find someone else to blame, don't let them take the
    fight outta you
    Secrets hide their lies inside hidden alibis, don't let them take the fight outta you
    They put the world on a hook, it's worse every time I look
    Don't let them take the fight outta you

    I would rather take a punch than not give you a shot
    I'd rather find out who you are than who you're not
    Should have known better than to mistake business for love
    Should have known better than to mistake a fist for a glove

    It will be in your honor 'til you're not needed any longer, don't let them take the fight
    outta you
    Don't believe the headlines, check it for yourself sometimes, don't let them take the fight
    outta you
    The lies you live become you, the love you lose it numbs you, don't let them take the fight
    outta you
    They say that you've arrived but that's just a high-class bribe, don't let them take the fight
    outta you

    There's always someone younger, someone with more hunger, don't let them take the fight outta
    you
    They'll say you're the one and only
    Then straight up leave you lonely, don't let them take the fight outta you
    Like a transplant-patient waiting for a donor, don't let them take the fight outta you
    Like a half empty balloon after a party in the corner, don't let them take the fight outta you
