Don't try to explain your mind
I know what's happening here
One minute it's love
And suddenly it's like a battle-field

One word turns into a
Why is it the smallest things that tear us down
My world's nothing when you don't
I'm not here without a shield
Can't go back now

Both hands tied behind my back with nothing
Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again
Why we gotta fall for it now
I never meant to start a war
You know I never wanna hurt you
Don't even know what we're fighting for

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield? (x2)
Why does love always feel like...

Can't swallow our pride,
Neither of us wanna raise that flag, mhmm
If we can't surrender then we both gonna lose what we had, oh no

Both hands tied behind my back with nothing
Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again
I don't wanna fall for it now
I never meant to start a war
You know I never wanna hurt you
Don't even know what we're fighting for

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield? (x2)

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor
I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor
I guess you better go and get your...

We could pretend that we are friends tonight (oh-oh-oh)
And in the morning we'll wake up and we'll be alright
Cause baby we don't have to fight
And I don't want this love to feel like...

A battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield,
Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield

I guess you better go and get your armor...

I never meant to start a war
You know I never wanna hurt you
Don't even know what we're fighting for (fighting, fighting for)

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield? (x2)

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor
I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor

Why does love always feel like...
Why does love always feel like...
A battlefield, a battlefield...

I never meant
To start a war
Don't even know
What we're fighting for

I never meant
To start a war
Don't even know
What we're fighting for

    The meaning of this song is that love is not always easy, but in a relationship there are going to be problems, and she doesn't know how to handle it. She doesn't want love to be difficult but when you're in love people have mixed emotions and things get complicated.

    Jordan is such a good singer! This song basically means, that love always has fights, so it's like a battlefield. Haha probably all of you who read this could have either figured that out on your own, or had a better and longer meaning. Haha well lemme addd more tto that meaning. That love is always gonna have it's up's and down's and fights, and is always gonna have some problems that the fights will end sooner or later and that love is never easy and you have to fight hard to stay togther and the fighst makeyou stronger:) That is a way better meaning than my first one:)

    I love this song so much and I would have to agree with lizzzotto the meaning of this song is that love isn't always easy, but in a realtionship there are going to be problems, and she don't know how to handle it. She don't want love to be difficult, but when you are in love some people have mixed emotions and it gets hard.
