I’ve picked this 1987 hit from the Bee Gees

Lyrics courtesy Genius.com

I couldn’t figure why
You couldn’t give me what everybody needs
I shouldn’t let you kick me when I’m down
My baby
I find out everybody know that
You’ve been using me
I’m surprised
You let me stay around you
One day I’m gonna lift the cover
And look inside your heart
We gotta level before we go
And tear this love apart

There’s no fight you can’t fight
This battle of love with me
You win again
So little time
We do nothing but compete
There’s no life on earth
No other could see me through
You win again
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can
And I’ll be (I’ll be) I’ll be (I’ll be)
Following you

Oh, girl

Oh baby I shake you from now on
I’m gonna break down your defenses
One by one
I’m gonna hit you from all sides
Lay your fortress open wide
Nobody stops this body from
Taking you
You better beware, I swear
I’m gonna be there one day when you fall
I could never let you cast aside
The greatest love of all

There’s no fight you can’t fight
This battle of love with me
You win again
So little time
We do nothing but compete
There’s no life on earth
No other could see me through
You win again
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can
And I’ll be (I’ll be) I’ll be (I’ll be)
Following you

You win again
So little time
We do nothing but compete
There’s no life on earth
No other could see me through
You win again
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can
And I’ll be (I’ll be) I’ll be (I’ll be)
Following you
Oh.. oh girl

You win again
So little time
We do nothing but compete
There’s no life on earth
(No life)
No other could see me through
(No other could, no other could)
You win again
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can

There’s no fight you can’t fight
This battle of love with me
(This battle of love)
You win again
So little time
We do nothing but compete
There’s no life on earth
No other could see me through

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. The Hook says:

    Love the Bee Gees.
    They’re timeless musical icons.

  2. Fandango says:

    I thought I’d heard most songs by The Bee Gees, but this one was new to me. Thanks for sharing it, Di.

  3. John Holton says:

    Felicia, who posted this as well, said that it had a hard time gaining traction in the US because a lot of program directors figured that The Bee Gees were damaged goods after their disco days and wouldn’t put this in their rotation. Shame, too, because it’s a great song and The Bee Gees were good regardless of what they did.

  4. Like minds! Chose this one too because…BEE GEES! 😁

    Such a great song and underappreciated in the U.S. 👍

  5. Lucky me I got to see and hear this twice today! Great choice Di 💕🙂
