Casualty Of Love

Album: Who You Are (2011)
  • We may not have all the answers
    Oh I know that we can change some of the things that are beyond our control
    And the vision of us may be blurry
    But use your heart to see
    Just follow the beat, the rhythm will lead you right back to me

    Sometimes it's a game of give and take
    It's easy to break
    But hold on and wait
    Have a little faith

    I will go down to the last round
    I'll be your strength to find you when you get lost in the crowd
    So I'll stand up tall, if by chance I fall
    Then I'll go down as a casualty of love

    The battle of us could be simple
    Escape without being hurt
    'Cause love is our shield, keeps us concealed
    From what could get even worse

    So baby let me be the soldier
    Don't be overtaken by pride
    Just close your eyes, take my hand
    I promise to keep us alive

    Sometimes it's a game of give and take
    It's easy to break
    But hold on and wait
    Have a little faith

    I will go down to the last round
    I'll be your strength to find you when you get lost in the crowd
    So I'll stand up tall, if by chance I fall
    Then I'll go down as a casualty of love

    All is fair
    In love and war
    Knock me down
    And I'll get back up wanting more
    Through the fire and rain
    It makes me numb from the pain
    That's the price, that's the price, I'll pay

    And I will go down to the last round
    I'll be your strength to find you when you get lost in the crowd
    So I'll stand up tall, and baby if I fall
    Then I'll go down as a casualty of love Writer/s: JESSICA CORNISH, FARRAH FLEURIMOND, MARTIN KLEVELAND, NATALIE WALKER
