Daughtry – Battleships lyrics

[Verse:]
I'm sinking inside
And the mass and lines are broken down tonight
I swallow my pride
But we're drowning in the ocean
And it's tearing my heart open baby

[Pre-Chorus:]
We're high, then we're low
First it's yes, then it's no
And we're changing like the tides
Yea, but I want you, I need you
And I guarantee you we'll make out alive

[Chorus:]
‘Cause I don't wanna fight no more
Even when the waves get rough
I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough
And I don't wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships
Like battleships

[Hook:]
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom
And the cannon goes

[Verse:]
Bombs fly through the air
And I know that we're both playing not so fair
Oh, show... Show me you care
Got my white flag up and it's waving
Cause you know this loves worth saving baby

[Pre-Chorus:]
We're high, then we're low
First it's yes, then it's no
And we're changing like the tides
Yea, but I want you, I need you
And I guarantee you we'll make out alive

[Chorus:]
Cause I don't wanna fight no more
Even when the waves get rough
I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough
And I don't wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships
Like battleships

[Hook:]
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom

And we love, yea love
(Boom b-boom boom b-boom)
And we love, yea love
(Boom b-boom boom b-boom)

I'm sinking inside
Cause we've finally put our weapons down tonight

[Chorus:]
Cause I don't wanna fight no more
Even when the waves get rough
I don't wanna see the day we say we've had enough
And I don't wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships
Like battleships

[Hook:]
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom
And we love, yea we love
(And the cannon goes)
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom
And we love, yea we love
(And the cannon goes)
Boom b-boom boom b-boom boom boom
Boom b-boom boom b-boom
We love like battleships

    From songfacts.com:

    This is a track from Daughtry's fourth album, which has a poppier sound than previous releases. Chris Daughtry told Rolling Stone that he sees it as more of a natural progression. "I love the stuff that's out on the radio. I've always been a sucker for pop melodies," he insisted. "I love the Katy Perry stuff, Pink, Imagine Dragons, even Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers, so [my album has] all these aspects of everything I love that's out there. I wanted to experiment a little bit with those kind of sounds and incorporate it in what we do."

    Daughtry told The Hollywood Reporter he was aware that some of his fanbase might question the direction he takes on this cut and the rest of Baptized: "This was one of the songs that made me kind of raise my eyebrows in a way of, 'Are the fans going to get this from me? Are they going to believe this? Is this too weird? Is it too out-there? Too pop?,'" he said. "And then, when I got in the vocal booth, I absolutely fell in love with singing it. I remember playing it for my dad, who is a hardcore country guy. He loves what we do, but he's a Merle Haggard guy. So, I was expecting him to hear these songs and go, 'Oh my gosh, that's different.' And he heard that one and he was like, 'Wow, that sounds like a hit.'"
