Description

Matt said on an interview that this song is about his uncle's cancer.[1]

The song is reminiscent of Ann-Lee’s 90s hit ‘2 Times’

Described by Matt as similar to 'Starlight' due it being mellow, when approaching Shellback, he made the song more 'dynamic' and changed the key of the song.[2] Tove Lo came on board through Shellback, who he met in LA, and they talked about doing one song together, thus incorporating her vocals in the album.[3]

Additional information

The Qmagazine made a preview of Simulation Theory on 23th October, and they said this about the song: "Get Up And Fight, the track made with Taylor Swift collaborator Shellback, aims to be a radiant pop moment but ends up sounding like a boyband putting on their leather jackets and totally, like, rocking out, yeah?"

Bellamy mentioned, in an interview for a french magazine called MyRock, when they were doing backing vocals, they decided to replace the highest pithced vocals with a popular singer Tove Lo, as Bellamy couldn't reach the upper registers without starting to scream, and he didn't want screaming.

This song, alongside other yet unreleased songs, was leaked in a series of short 20 second video clips showing the vinyl player and fully leaked, a day later, on 7th of November, with the entire album.

Live

More info here soon.

Lyrics

What we have's the only thing worth fighting for And I, I won't let nothing keep us apart Through these fallouts there is A truth and pain but through it all You will always have my heart

I see a change on the horizon Reasons to be frightened I know that we can pull through I am here to tell you

Get up and fight Get up and fight I can't do this thing without you I'm lost in this without you Get up and fight We've gotta get up and fight I can't handle this without you Can't do it without you

In our heads, a million voices scream and shout And no one will ever hear a sound Oh, only you can hush it And calm the turmoil and the noise And help me reach the higher ground

I see a change on the horizon Reasons to be frightened There's nothing we can't get through I am here to tell you

To get up and fight Get up and fight I can't do this thing without you I'm lost in this without you Get up and fight We've gotta get up and fight I can't handle this without you Can't do it without you

Get up and fight Get up and fight I can't do it without you

Get up and fight Get up and fight I can't do this thing without you I'm lost in this without you Get up and fight We've gotta get up and fight I can't handle this without you Can't do it without you

I can't survive without your love in my life You've gotta get up and fight
