Emily Kinney – This Is War lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh, I know, I know, I know
All the songs you write are about me
But you changed the names so I can't stake my claim
You're s greedy
And I know, I know, I know
That you think you're a much better writer
And that might be true but what I've got on you
Is I'm a fighter

[Chorus]
This is war
My fingers are sore
So far from the top
But I refuse to stop
Got shakers in my eardrums
Bossing like a new gun
And, baby, when it's all done
You won't mind that I've won
This is a battle
You are the prize
Put down that piano
Let's start our lives
You've got more soldiers
But I've got more passion
And I'm right behind you
Just gaining traction

Pow, pow, pow, pow!
Bang, bang, bang, bang!
Pow, pow, pow, pow!
Bang, bang, bang, bang!

[Verse 2]
And I know, I know, I know
About the lovers in your bulletproof lining
They don't intimidate
They're just too bit-ah late and bad timing
And I know, I know, I know
You got your battle plan mapped out in inches
But I'm not scared of you
I'm jumping right into these Brooklyn trenches

[Chorus]
This is war
My fingers are sore
I might be a masochist
Just asking for more
'Cause this stage is like a standoff
And you're pretty tough
I'm bruised and bloody
But I'll never give up
This is a battle
You are the prize
Put down that piano
And come to my side
We'll sing songs together
I'll hold your hand
Make perfect-pitched babies
And form a band

[Bridge]
I don't really want
I don't really wanna fight no more
I'm sweatin' in the sun
Camped out with ammo at your do-o-o-o-or
Oh, I don't really want
I don't really wanna fight no more
I just can't be beat
So I will stand the heat
Until your love,
Your love is sure
Baby, this is war

Bang, bang, bang, bang!
Pow, pow, pow, pow!
Bang, bang, bang, bang!
Pow, pow, pow, pow!
Bang, bang, bang, bang!
Pow, pow, pow, pow!
Bang, bang, bang, bang!
