  • Yeah
    I'm sinking inside
    But the maps and lines are broken down tonight.
    I swallow my pride
    But we're drowning in the ocean
    And it's tearing my heart open, baby

    We're high then we're low, first it's yes then it's no,
    And we're changing like the tides
    Yeah, but I want you, I need you,
    And I guarantee you we'll make it out alive

    'Cause I don't wanna fight no more,
    Even when the waves get rough
    And I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough

    And I don't wanna fight this war
    Bullets coming off our lips
    But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
    Like battleships.

    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And the cannon goes
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And the cannon goes

    Bombs fly through the air
    And I know that we're both playing not so fair.
    Woah, show, show me you care
    I got my white flag up and it's waving
    'Cause you know this love's worth saving baby.

    We're high then we're low, first it's yes then it's no,
    And we're changing like the tides
    Yeah, but I want you, I need you,
    And I guarantee you we'll make it out alive

    'Cause I don't wanna fight no more,
    Even when the waves get rough
    And I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough

    And I don't wanna fight this war
    Bullets coming off our lips
    But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
    Like battleships.

    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And the cannon goes
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And we love, yeah we love
    And we love, yeah we love

    I'm sinking inside
    Can we finally put our weapons down tonight?

    'Cause I don't wanna fight no more,
    Even when the waves get rough
    And I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough

    And I don't wanna fight this war
    Bullets coming off our lips
    But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships, woah
    Like battleships.

    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And the cannon goes
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And the cannon goes
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And the cannon goes
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
    Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
    And we love like battleships. Writer/s: CHRIS DAUGHTRY, MARTIN JOHNSON, SAM HOLLANDER
