What Are We Fighting For

Tell me what are we fighting for?
Because I’m growing weak and weary
Tell me what are we fighting for
Because my eyes are getting teary…
Tell me what are we fighting for….

For the smiles that have begun to fade
For the laughs that have turned to cries
For all the great memories that we made
Now drowned by failed attempts and tries

For tender words that captured our hearts
Words that now only leave behind scars
For bitterness that has pushed us apart
Or the memories we made under the stars

Can you tell me what are we fighting for
Because I am losing sleep
Tell me what are we fighting for
Because the pain cuts too deep
Please tell me what are we fighting for….

Have we forgotten what made us so great?
Have we forgotten all that we shared?
How could this love ever turn to hate?
Please tell me can our hearts be spared?

Here we are fighting each other
A closeness that we once cherished
Is now a weapon to hurt one another
A sad tale of a love that will perish

What happened to fighting for us?
Did the hope for something better get lost
To make us wonder what we are fighting for?
Tell me what are we fighting for…
