Arms And Armour

lyrics

Ams and armour

It’s danger when you touch me
bombs and ricochets
I know I should be running
away from you and yet
all these arms and armour
are slowing down my step
I’m my own disarmer
my gun towards my head

You were aiming for my heart but
pierced right through my soul
I thought dying would be easy
but it left me stiff and cold
and all these arms and armour
they don’t do me any good
when my heart’s outside my chest
and my guns are made of wood

There’s no defense for
what I’m feeling
you stripped me of 
my arms and armour
This fight is getting
pretty tired
I’m putting down 
my arms and armour
I surrender to you now
I’m walking through the ruins
of all my hopes and dreams
I watch them float away as
teardrops in a stream
and all these arms and armour
I am putting them away
If only I can be with you
I’ll be ok

There’s no defense for
what I’m feeling
you stripped me of 
my arms and armour
This fight is getting
pretty tired
I’m putting down 
my arms and armour
I surrender to you now
