(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
