Just Fighting Lonely


Jenny Ray/Jerry Silverstein

Story

This song is about how sometimes you don't appreciate what you have until you've given it up. When a relationship develops tensions, sometimes the reflexive reaction is to  think that by splitting up everything will be made better, Sadly, that's not always the case and many people have found that they can't live or without someone they love. This is a hook that Jenny brought to a Skype session when she was staying in Nashville the  summer of 2014, and the song flowed pretty quickly.

"I can scream or slam the door

Nothing matters anymore

‘Cause no one’s there to tell to me to calm down

The fighting used to be just you and me.

But now I’m just fighting lonely."
