Don’t try to explain your mind
I know what’s happening here
One minute it’s love
And suddenly it’s like a battle-field
One word turns into a
Why is it the smallest things that tear us down
My world’s nothing when you don’t
I’m not here without a shield
Can’t go back now
Both hands tied behind my back with nothing
Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again
Why we gotta fall for it now
I never meant to start a war
You know I never wanna hurt you
Don’t even know what we’re fighting for
