Lightning strike
Inside my chest to keep me up at night
Dream of ways
To make you understand my pain

Clouds of sulfur in the air
Bombs are falling everywhere
It's heartbreak warfare
Once you want it to begin
No one really ever wins
In heartbreak warfare

If you want more love why don't you say so
If you want more love why don't you say so

Drop his name
Push it in and twist the knife again
Watch my face
As I pretend to feel no pain, pain, pain

Clouds of sulfur in the air
Bombs falling every where
It's heartbreak warfare
Once you want it to begin
No one really ever wins
In heartbreak warfare

If you want more love why don't you say so
If you want more love why don't you say so
Just say so

How come the only way you know how high you get me
Is to see how far I fall
God only knows how much I'd love you if ya let me
But I can't break through it all

It's a heart... heartbreaka

I don't care if we don't sleep at all tonight
Lets just fix this whole thing now
I swear to God were gonna get it right
If you lay your weapon down
Red wine and Ambien you're talking shit again
It's heartbreak warfare
Good to know it's all a game
Disappointment has a name
It's heartbreak... heartbreak

It's heartbreak warfare
It's heartbreak warfare
It's heartbreak warfare

    Love this song so much, but the line that gave me best feels is " Dream of ways to make you understand my pain".. Hope this pain end soon!!

    This song focuses on "War of Hearts" it means, how couples fight for love and misunderstandings. And how can they overcome it without the need to break-up.

    Its what happens when a pair breaks up but no one in the pair are sure of what they really feel one is sure he or she want the relationship to be fix. Its the process of getting through the breakup to decide to fix it or leave it and move on.
