lyrics

I dropped my weapon in a creek bed
Ran clear to write this secret
I was the devil in the moonlight
Waving banners and charging the fight
I was losing my remembrance of the home we made
I got afraid

We’re lovers in a time of war
Who don’t know what they’re fighting for
Who can’t recall what common sense is
While scaling all their barbed-wire fences
Lovers in a time of war, lovers in a time of war

I can dream you waiting on the front steps
The wind blows gently your dress
But I’m gonna have hell to pay dear
For the things I’ve done and seen here
Before this blood was shed we were naive
Now I believe, (in…)

We’re lovers in a time of war
Who don’t know what they’re fighting for
Who can’t recall what common sense is
While scaling all their barbed-wire fences
Lovers in a time of war, lovers in a time of war

Though war may break our bodies
My heart, my thoughts fly to you, dear
If they lay me low in fields of violence
My restless spirit won’t be silenced
Till I’m with you

Before this blood was shed we were naïve… Now I believe

We’re lovers in a time of war
Who don’t know what they’re fighting for
Who can’t recall what common sense is
While scaling all their barbed-wire fences
Lovers in a time of war, lovers in a time of war
We’re not thinking ‘bout tomorrow
Today is just some time we borrow
Lovers in a time of war, lovers in a time of war
