    For those of you who've not heard this song, you can hear/watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MZI07TmakU

    It's on their new album, Backspacer.

    I found this song very inspirational, it reminds me of the way I see what happened to me about 4 years ago, which was a mix of a very bad situation, doubled with an extreme reaction to the contraceptive pill. Since then it has been an internal struggle for me to pull my body & mind back from that, a lot of which is still going on.

    It's a very simple song, unlike a few older Pearl Jam songs,but sometimes the hardest, most complex things, like a physical health problem, are best explained in a simple, everyday way.

    I'm going make this song the official symbol of hope for me, that maybe, just maybe one day my body will stop hurting, and I can pursue the things I've missed out on.



    The lyrics:

    Yeah, hey, hey
    When somethings dark, let me shed a little light on it
    When somethings cold, let me put a little fire on it
    If somethings old, I wanna put a bit of shine on it
    When somethings gone, I wanna fight to get it back again

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, fight to get it back again
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    When somethings broke, I wanna put a bit of fixin on it
    When somethings bored, I wanna put a little exciting on it
    If somethings low, I wanna put a little high on it
    When somethings lost, I wanna fight to get it back again

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, fight to get it back again
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    When signals cross, I wanna put a little straight on it
    If there's no love, I wanna try to love again

    I’ll say your prayers, I’ll take your side
    I'll find us a way to make light
    I'll dig your grave, we'll dance and sing
    What's saved could be one last lifetime

    Hey, hey, hey
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, fight to get it back again
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Fight to get it back again, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Fight to get it back again, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
