Heartbreak Warfare

Album: Battle Studies (2009)
Charted: 34
  • Lightning strike
    Inside, my chest to keep me up at night
    Dream of ways
    To make you understand my pain

    Clouds of sulfur in the air
    Bombs are falling everywhere
    It's heartbreak warfare
    Once you want it to begin,
    No one really ever wins
    In heartbreak warfare
    If you want more love,
    Why don't you say so?
    If you want more love,
    Why don't you say so?

    Drop his name
    Push it in and twist the knife again
    Watch my face
    As I pretend to feel no pain, pain, pain

    Clouds of sulfur in the air
    Bombs are falling everywhere
    It's heartbreak warfare
    Once you want it to begin,
    No one really ever wins
    In heartbreak warfare
    If you want more love,
    Why don't you say so?
    If you want more love,
    Why don't you say so?

    Just say so

    How come the only way to know how high you get me
    Is to see how far I fall
    God only knows how much I'd love you if you let me
    But I can't break through at all.

    It's a heart, heartbreak

    I don't care if we don't sleep at all tonight
    Let's just fix this whole thing now
    I swear to God we're gonna get it right
    If you lay your weapon down
    Red wine and Ambien
    You're talking shit again, it's heartbreak warfare
    Good to know it's all a game
    Disappointment has a name, it's heartbreak, heartbreak

    It's heartbreak warfare
    It's heartbreak warfare
    It's heartbreak warfareWriter/s: JOHN MAYER
