Hits & Hooks!

VANN’s Sometimes You Gotta Fight is an upbeat, radio-ready “anthem of encouragement” for anyone going through a dark time. Written by VANN and Ryan Burton, the song was produced in Real2Reel Studios in Jonesboro, Georgia by VANN and features Georgia musicians, Burton on bass and VANN vocals and guitars for a distinct “north meets south” sound. All proceeds from the track go to Atlanta’s CURE Childhood Cancer.

Sometimes You Gotta Fight

tell me why you cut your hair?
you’re still beautiful, no one will really care
tell me, why’d you hide your smile?
you’re gonna need it in a little while
don’t worry baby
anything is possible now

turn off your tears and the lights
everything will be alright
you and me, there’s nothing we can’t beat
hold onto hope and your dreams
got a shot, it’s all we need
to make it right
sometimes you gotta fight

tell me why you feel alone
you’ve stolen the heart of everyone you’ve ever known
I’ll tell you what I know for sure
so many things we’ll do once you feel better
so don’t worry baby
‘cuz nothing is impossible now

turn off your tears and the lights
everything will be alright
you and me, there’s nothing we can’t beat, see?
hold onto hope and your dreams
got a shot, it’s all we need
to make it right
sometimes you gotta fight

I know it’s hard, I know it hurts
I know it’s more than you or anyone deserve
and when life shows darkness and pain
know that brighter days will come again

sometimes you just gotta fight
