Rush - Resist Lyrics




I can learn to resist
Anything but temptation
I can learn to coexist
With anything but pain

I can learn to compromise
Anything but my desires
I can learn to get along
With all the things I can't explain

I can learn to resist
Anything but frustration
I can learn to persist
With anything but aiming low

I can learn to close my eyes
To anything but injustice
I can learn to get along
With all the things I don't know

You can surrender
Without a prayer
But never really pray
Pray without surrender

You can fight
Without ever winning
But never ever win
Without a fight

I can learn to resist
Anything but temptation
I can learn to coexist
With anything but pain

I can learn to compromise
Anything but my desires
I can learn to get along
With all the things I can't explain

    I can learn
    to resist
    anything
    but temptation

    I can learn
    to co-exist
    with anything
    but pain

    I can learn
    to compromise
    anything
    but my desires

    I can learn
    to get along
    with all the things
    I can't explain

    I can learn
    to resist
    anything
    but frustration

    I can learn
    to persist
    with anything
    but aiming low

    I can learn
    to close my eyes
    to anything
    but injustice

    I can learn
    to get along
    with all the things
    I don't know

    you can surrender
    without a prayer
    but never really pray
    pray without surrender

    you can fight
    without ever winning
    but never ever win
    without a fight

  15. Like a Leaf in the Wind

    When I spent over a year bedridden due to knee surgery, there was a singular moment when I was so in pain I just wanted to give up. This song made me "hang in there" and I knew I had it in me to recover and that I would. By my own efforts and perseverance.

    Thank you, RUSH. I wish I could tell you guys how fundamental you guys have been to me.

  16. Sean Humphreys

    This band is out of this fucking world.

  18. Long Forgotten

    The lyrics in the instrumental atmosphere

  19. William Seyfried

    If you grow up and hear the acoustic one first this just sounds funny. Like it’s too fast and somehow medieval European sounding.

    Liam Kid

    Meh. I feel like they almost exist as 2 separate and enjoyable works.

    William Seyfried

    I try to enjoy this one and I do sometimes

    Michael Barrowman

    It was written to have a Celtic feel.. That was intended 👍

  20. R Diaz

    May 17, 1997: T4E, The Gorge Amphiteatre, Washington state. Best venue ever for a Rush show. I was there. Best show ever.

  21. MrAnimal1971

    The lyrics of this song just cut so deep. IT gets me every time.

  22. Diana Aranda

    ✨😇✨

  23. H K1

    Rush you always simplify a equation...

  24. Joetime90

    When the lyrics just hit your every feel... Neil why you do dis...

    RIP Niel...

  25. lisa Carlucci

    That the shit

  26. Beavispdx

    that bridge is fucking awesome

  27. Lughnerson

    The live acoustic version blows this one away.
