  • I would march across the dessert, to defeat my enemy
    And I would lie here in the trenches, with your picture next to me
    And when I told you it's forever, then that's how it's gonna be
    Don't, won't let him, just take the place of me, no

    Does he really know you like, I know you all the little things
    Does he really love you like I love you, how can he compete
    If he makes me fight for you, die for you, would he do the same
    This has turned into way more than a game

    Now it feels like, soldiers in a war, and none of us are backing down,
    And I will show you victory is mine, before we leave this battle ground
    'Cause he don't leave and he don't wanna go
    And I know just how this battle goes
    He don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna fight this kind of war

    You know hes not the man you think he is, hes hiding all his flaws
    So tell me whats the point in fighting, cause we'll all end up with scars
    But girl if that's what I must go through, then I'm not prepared to lose
    'Cause I've already bled so much for you, no

    Does he really know you like, I know you all the little things
    Does he really love you like I love you, how can he compete
    If he makes me fight for you, I'd die for you, would he do the same
    Baby this has turned into way more than a game

    Baby cause we're soldiers in a war, and none of us are backing down,
    And I will show you victory is mine, before we leave this battle ground
    'Cause he don't wanna leave and I don't wanna go
    And I know just how this battle goes
    He don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna fight this kind of war

    I'm getting kind of sick of this battle
    Wish I can take it back to when I had you
    I'm almost thinking that he can have you
    Just let him have you

    It's getting kind of hard to convince you
    After all the shit that we've been through
    Why would you let all this happen?
    You got a choice to make it stop,
    It's already gone to far girl

    We're soldiers in a war, and none of us are backing down,
    And I will show you victory is mine, before we leave this battle ground

    'Cause he don't wanna leave and I don't wanna go
    And I know just how this battle goes
    He don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna fight this kind of war

    'Cause he don't wanna leave and I don't wanna go
    And I know just how this battle goes
    He don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna fight this kind of war Writer/s: Jared Cotter, JARRED COTTER, Jay Sean, Jeremy Skaller, KAMALJIT JHOOTI, KAMALJIT SINGH JHOOTI, ROBERT LAROW, Robert W Larow
