I would march across the desert to defeat my enemy
And I would lie here in the trenches with your picture next to me
And when I told you it's forever, then it's how it's gonna be
Don't, won't let him just take the place of me (No...)

Does he really know you like I know you, all the little things?
Does he really love you, like I love you, how can he compete?
If he makes me fight for you, die for you, would he do the same?
This is turning into way more than a game...

Now it feels like soldiers in a war and none of us are backing down
And I will show you victory is mine before we leave this battleground
Cause he don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna go
And I know just how this battle goes
He don't wanna leave and I don't wanna fight this kind of war

You know he's not the man you think he is; he's hiding all his flaws
So tell me what's the point of fighting? Because we'll all end up with scars
But girl if that's what I must go through, then I'm not prepared to lose
Cause I've already bled so much for you (No...)

Does he really know you like I know you, all the little things?
Does he really love you, like I love you, how can he compete?
If he makes me fight for you, I die for you, would he do the same?
Baby this is turning into way more than a game...

Baby cause we're soldiers in a war and none of us are backing down
And I will show you victory is mine before we leave this battleground
Cause he don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna go
And I know just how this battle goes
He don't wanna leave and I don't wanna fight this kind of war (No, No...)

Getting kind of sick of this battle
Wish I could take it back to when I had you
I'm always thinking that I can have you, just let him have you
It's getting kinda hard to convince you

After all the shit that we've been through
What, would you let all this happen?
You gotta choice to make it stop
It's already going too far...

Girl we're soldiers in a war and none of us are backing down
And I will show you victory is mine before we leave this battleground
Cause he don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna go
And I know just how this battle goes
He don't wanna leave and I don't wanna fight this kind of war

Cause he don't wanna leave, and I don't wanna go
And I know just how this battle goes
He don't wanna leave and I don't wanna fight this kind of war...

    I believe that you should fight for the one u love.this symbolize how two lovers should always fight for each other. One might fight a lot but that should not be a solution to a problem. Many people love each other because they just feel like it. While others do it because they really do love each other and willalwaysprotecteach other.

    I feel this song has more than just a meaning to it..
    but my suggestion would be that..

    hes lost his girlfriend and i feel shes now seeing someone that was once an enemy to him. The War in my view symbolizes that he wants to fight for her, and so does this other guy, they obviously are prepared and are not willing to back out "we're soldiers in a war and none of us are backing down"..
    ill go back to the second line..

    "cause he dont wanna leave and i dont wanna go.
    + i know just how this battle goes."
    this to me makes me feel as though Jay is suggesting a war in which terms two people are placed into a war ground, the person that leaves loses, but there cannot be a winner unless theres one person dead.
    one must kill another.

    "cause he dont wanna leave + i dont wanna fight this kind of war."
    although he loves the girl, and will not leave to be the loser.
    he explaines "i will show you victory is mine before we leave this battleground." he is not going to not fight, although he doesnt want to, as he understands that he will have to kill this other guy.

    i think this is a highly emotional song and Jay should be very proud..
    one of my favourite from his album.. hes incredible!
    so much meaning is put into this song, the lyrics, and this is shown through the was he sings..

    Amazing Jay Sean! Simply Amazing
    much love.

    It reminds me of terrorism when the songs says "we're soldiers in a was" etc. I have no idea why..

    I also think of a love triangle and people fighting over this one person and how blind the girl is because she doesn't see how much he loves her more than the other guy and how special their love is.. :)

    When you have that guy who loves you and he knows you more than you know yourself, you know you have your own battle. Fight for the one who just faught for you
