  • The wound heals but it never does
    That's cause you're at war with love
    You're at war with love, yeah

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change
    These battle

    Never let a wound ruin me
    But I feel like ruin's wooing me
    Arrow holes that never close from cupid on a shooting spree
    Feeling stupid cause I know it ain't no you and me
    But when you're trying to beat the odds up
    Been trying to keep your nods up and you know that you should know
    And let her go but the fear of the unknown
    Holding another lover's phone sends you back into the zone
    With no Tom Hanks to bring you home
    A lover not a fighter on the front line with a poem
    Trying to write yourself a rifle
    Maybe sharpen up a song
    To fight the tanks and drones of you being alone

    I wish I never looked, I wish I never touched
    I wish that I could stop loving you so much
    Cause I'm the only one that's trying to keep us together
    When all of the signs say that I should forget her
    I wish you weren't the best, the best I ever had
    I wish that the good outweighed the bad
    Cause it'll never be over, until you tell me it's over

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change
    These battle

    (And just leave then)
    You shouldn't have but you said it
    (And I hope you never come back)
    It shouldn't have happened but you let it
    Now you're down on the ground screaming medic
    The only thing that comes is the post-traumatic stresses
    Shields, body armours and vests
    Don't properly work, that's why you're in a locker full of hurt
    The enemy within and all the fires from your friends
    The best medicine is to probably just let her win

    I wish I couldn't feel, I wish I couldn't love
    I wish that I could stop 'cause it hurts so much
    And I'm the only one that's trying to keep us together
    When all of the signs say that I should forget her
    I wish you weren't the best, the best I ever had
    I wish that the good outweighed the bad
    Cause it'll never be over, until you tell me it's over

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change
    These battle

    'Cause you've set me on fire
    I've never felt so alive, yeah

    Hoping wounds heal, but it never does
    That's because you're at war with love

    And I'm at the point of breaking
    And it's impossible to shake it

    See, you hoped the wound heals, but it never does
    That's cause you're at war with love
    Hope it heals, but it never does
    That's cause you're at war with love!

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change

    These battle scars, don't look like they're fading
    Don't look like they're ever going away
    They ain't never gonna change
