This is a track James wrote, and that James sings lead vocals on! Yes, it's the first ever Nerve Centre track that doesn't feature that arrogant pup, Ronan, on lead vocals.

To clarify, it's not a cover of the Mariah Carey song.


Verse 1:
Fade away, back to grey
Learn to live another day
You’re falling down to the floor
Reaching out for something more
You want it all, but can’t say
Won’t you lead me astray?
All I need is something new
Looking out, just for you

But you can’t fight through the rain
And I will never explain
That you can’t fight through the rain
And nothing will hide my disdain, for you

Verse 2:
Winning back what you stole
Fighting to regain control
Skidding my way round the bends
Finding ways to make new friends

Fade away, back to grey
Live to fight another day
Holding on for something real
Learning again how to feel

Final chorus:
But you can’t fight through the rain
I don’t know what you stand to gain
If you try to fight through the pain
And you’re drinking all my champagne
Trying to steal all my fame
But you’re fighting a losing game
Trying to fight your way through the rain
I can’t hide my disdain, for you.
