Nikka Costa – Tug Of War lyrics

There are times in our lives
When our hearts fear our minds
We can't afford to ignore
What our hearts are beating for

My soul wants to go one way
But my heart and mind playing a tug of war with me baby

Cut to the truth and watch it bleed
And in the wounds just what we need
It's everywhere if we dare
To trust the fall to lead you there

My soul wants to go one way
But my heart and mind playing a tug of war with me baby

Let me out of this cage
I'm begging for mercy I'm being your slave
What do you want me to see, my eyes are inflamed
With the rage that's among us when we come of age
There's nothing I don't know, just hasn't come to me yet
We're only trying to remember what we choose to forget
Everybody's a child that is open and free
If we can trust ourselves to be indiscreet
With our love
