Bounded Between Peace And War

They both drew a breath before the flood	
Determined to make their way through
They could feel a change in their blood
And tried to forget what they knew

The meaning of love has been sunken in sea
Its all dark with the shipwrecks and the needs
What miserable times for lovers to be
And one has a heart that slows when it bleeds

He gave her all that he had to give
She took it  and asked for more
And he just needed more time to live
Bounded between peace and war

The future is the hardest thing to keep
It wasn’t easy for him to grow up so fast
Before he knew it he forgot how to weep
And he put his own hauntings into the past

These lovers here they had it tough
They tried to keep their love afloat
But one said they’ve had enough
And the other didn’t have a vote

Whether it’s love, the sun, or it’s you
Time crumbles it all and turns it to wind
And there’s nothing anyone can do
But realize it’ll all be blown in the end
