Description

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

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

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

Tove Lo sings the highest notes in 'Get Up and Fight'. Because Matt couldn't reach those notes unless he screamed, which he disliked[4]

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?"

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.

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
