  • War, war

    Divided doubt, grown to separate
    Our weathered hearts search for home again
    Too afraid to take those uncertain steps
    But two years ago we were stronger then
    Yeah, two years ago we were stronger then
    (Yeah, two years ago we were stronger)
    When we dove head first, we were so alive
    Risking everything trying to change lives
    Now, my red eyes filled with shallow compromise
    Ripping tickets, split commitment, future undefined

    I never wanted to watch us fight like war
    And turn away from each other
    We had to stop and surrender to restore
    And find a way to recover
    Losing all we should have been
    Consequences made in this failure on to feel again, feel again

    Blacked out, misguided rage
    Grown to separate our hardened hearts from our resentful brains
    No way to see how far down you’ll land
    When the fall you take wasn’t part of your plan
    Doomed if you do, disowned if you don’t
    No way out for any one of us
    Doomed if you do, disowned if you don’t
    No way out for any one of us

    I never wanted to watch us fight like war
    And turn away from each other
    We had to stop and surrender to restore
    And find a way to recover
    Losing all we should have been
    Consequences made in this failure on to feel again, feel again

    Cold like war
    Cold like war

    I bit my tongue, let the blood fill my mouth
    I just smiled while I sat there and bled out
    But, through this I found out where I stand
    I will never betray me again
    (Cold like war)
    Cold like war
    (Cold like war)

    I never wanted to watch us fight like war
    And turn away from each other
    We had to stop and surrender to restore
    And find a way to recover
    Losing all we should have been
    Consequences made in this failure on to feel again, feel again Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
