my war for you

my love for you is an act of war
a lights-out struggle on a trap door
you can call me a friend or your enemy
but i will never go quietly

it’s all i have even when it’s not enough
my war for you is an act of love

we’re a work of art, we’re an act of will
we’re a shooting star and a poison pill
you’re the life support, you’re the heart attack
you’re two steps forward and free fall back

i will fight for you
till you turn around
i will win you
i will bring you back
when you run aground

i never lie down with hope to spare
but come tomorrow it’s always there
come tomorrow it’s always there
