I Live on a Battlefield

Album: The Distance (2009)
  • I live on a battlefield
    Surrounded by the ruins of the love we built
    And then destroyed between us
    The smoke has cleared
    As I stumble through the rubble
    I'm dazed, seeing double
    And I'm truly mystified

    My new home is a shell hole filled
    With tears and muddy water
    And bits of broken heart
    All around there is desolation
    And scenes of devastation
    Of a love been torn apart
    I live on a battlefield
    I live on a battlefield

    I live on a battlefield
    The one where not one single drop of blood has spilled
    Is no less horrifying
    Sweet memories, memories
    Of a bygone situation
    Now shattered lord and battered
    Lie scattered all around

    My new home is a shell hole filled
    With tears and muddy water
    Yes and bits of broken heart
    All around there is desolation
    And scenes of devastation
    Of a love been torn apart
    I live on a battlefield
    I live on a battlefield

    Everything that can has gone wrong
    (I live on a battlefield)
    It's gonna take spine to carry on
    (I live on a battlefield)
    Like a drowning man coming up for air
    (I live on a battlefield)
    I'm looking for another survivor
    But I can't see one anywhere

    My new home is filled with muddy water
    All around there's bits of broken heart
    My world is one of desolation
    And scenes of devastation
    There is no consolation
    For a love been torn apart
    I live on a battlefield
    I live on a battlefield
    I live on a battlefield, battlefield
    I live on a battlefield Writer/s: NICHOLAS ORAIN LOWE, PAUL MELVYN CARRACK
