  • Don't try to explain your mind
    I know what's happening here
    One minute, it's love
    And, suddenly, it's like a battlefield

    One word turns into a war
    Why is it the smallest things that tear us down
    My world's nothing when you're gone
    I'm out here without a shield, can't go back, now

    Both hands tied behind my back for 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 we're fighting for
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    Why does love always feel like

    Can't swallow our pride
    Neither of us wanna raise that flag, mm
    If we can't surrender
    Then, we're both gonna lose we have, oh, no

    Both hands tied behind my back for nothing (nothing) oh no
    These times when we climb so fast to fall, again
    I don't wanna fall for it, now

    I never meant to start a war
    You know, I never wanna hurt you
    Don't even know we're fighting for
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    Better go and get your armor
    (get your armor) get your armor (get your armor)
    I guess you better go and get your armor
    (get your armor) get your armor (get your armor)
    I guess you better go and get your

    We could pretend that we are friends, tonight (oh)
    And, in the morning, we wake up, and we'd be alright
    Cause, baby, we don't have to fight
    And I don't want this love to feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    I guess you better go and get your armor

    I never meant to start a war
    You know, I never wanna hurt you
    Don't even know we're fighting for
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield
    I guess you better go and get your armor
    (get your armor) get your armor (get your armor)
    I guess you better go and get your armor
    (get your armor) get your armor (get your armor)
    Why does love always feel like (oh, oh)
    Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield

    I never meant to start a war
    Don't even know what we're fighting for
    I never meant to start a war
    Don't even know what we're fighting for Writer/s: LOUIS BIANCANIELLO, RYAN TEDDER, SAM WATTERS, WAYNE WILKINS
