I was a fighter, not a lover, and I thought it did me well
'Cos I had a fire in my belly, felt like I could conquer hell
And anyone who tried to love me would only feel my wrath
Because to love is but a weakness and my fury lit my path

I was a fighter, not a lover, and I thought that's all you need
Got the measure of my opponent by their capacity to bleed
But I live by a code, I don't cheat and I don't lie
'Cos if everything in love and war is fair, then nothing's fair in life

There were boys who turned my head of course
There were girls who stole my heart
But I was never what they're looking for
I could never play the part

And there's only so far you can go in the spirit of never being alone
Before you realise some people are better on their own

I've been a fighter and a lover, now I'm neither truth be told
But I still don't understand which one was better for my soul.
