Chris Mills – A Farewell To Arms lyrics

Lover, lay your weapons down
And wipe the blood from around your mouth
And let the armies of my heart
Beaten but still beating
Go silently retreating in night
There is no common ground left for to fight
So, lover, lay your weapons down

You soldier, you captain
You've seen so much action
I know our bed is only ashes now

But I can't believe
How you could bear to see
All those fresh-faced boys with copper coins across their eyes

They came with looks to kill
But all they learned how to do was die
So, lover, lay your weapons down

Lover, lay your weapons down
And let the bodies all be found
Naked, burnt, and twisted
Tattooed hearts upon their wrists
And passion forever frozen in their mouths
At least now we know what love is all about
So, lover, lay your weapons down
Lover, lay your weapons down
