Higher the tide, the deeper the sea

And you: the greatest part of me

Love is like a battle call

Puts your back up against the wall

When I get home I’ll be longing for you

Your voice is angelic

It paralyzes, and the war of cries

Bites like lies

Because love is alien

At the front lines

In the trenches, the cold crawls up your spine

And you can’t help but wonder

If you’ll see the empty sky again tonight

Through the storm we reach the shore

I gave it my all but you want more

See the stone set in your eyes

See the thorn twist in your side

With sleight of hand and twist of fate

On a bed of nails you wait

You give yourself away

My hands are tied

My body bruised, you have left me with

Nothing to win

And nothing to lose

Nothing but you

It twists my guts into knots and pieces

Devours me from the inside out

To see your suffering and there’s nothing I can do

It gives me too much to think about

Almost silent, you whisper “save yourself,”

But I will only hold you tight

You can’t leave me, not tonight

I will take on one last fight

Now a soldier of love

Made a promise to you to do what’s right

The shackles are undone

The bullets quit the gun

The heat that’s in the sun

Will keep us when there’s none

Marching by day, dreaming by night

On the other side of war your love’s a light

I’m here on soil blown apart

To fight for the love of my heart

Because my love’s home alone

And I’m here wandering around with orders like a drone

Waiting for the flight home

I promise I’m coming home to you, baby

Yes it’s true

War tears through the soul

Our love in the fog like a fiery coal

Mistakes are made but chances are free

I’ve made mistakes, the chances I need is one

As long as you’re alive I’ll run

To the ends of the universe

A song going into its final verse

Nowhere to live and nowhere to hide

All I can live off is my hope and pride

And pray it will be enough this time
