There's a broken barstool on the floor.
There's a fork sticking out of the wall.
There are tears running down my cheeks again.
The aftermath of our last Lover's Brawl.
Your things are packed up in the garage,
The suitcase is packed with your clothes.
Your hands left bruises on my skin again,
My skin yearns for more of your blows.
The fight is over, my anger dissolved.
And I'm alone, wide awake in my bed.
The highlights, the lowlights of You And Me.;
Each moment replays in my head.
I read through our texts, our war of words,
I cringe at each cruel, hateful taunt.
I know you better than I know myself,
what you love, what you fear, what you want.
Insults thrown like hand grenades.
My insecurities are your greatest weapons.
The secrets you stole when you hijacked my heart;
Become ammo, this is Love Armageddon.
It's a vicious cycle we've fallen into,
Each battle leaves us bloody and battered.
Sorry can't unsay the things we just said,
Can't fix trust that's been broken and shattered.
My war-torn heart is full of regret;
I weep bitterly for what might have been.
For the years we wasted, the pain we caused,
For my weakness, cuz I want you again.
My bed grows larger as the night goes on;
I need you, I love you so much.
No one can wound me the way that you do,
Nothing soothes my wounds like your touch.
And it won't take much to change your mind...
If I'm crying, if I call out "Baby, wait."
I don't want you gone, you don't wanna go,
You fall back, my turn to retaliate.
I cling to the soft spots you've buried deep;
You search for the girl I used to be.
Our love was captured, a prisoner of war,
Now we're broken, lost Love Refugees.
And there's nothing fair about the mess we made,
There's no undoing what has already been...
I'll never forget, I hope you'll live to regret...
When love becomes war, no one wins.
