I thought we were meant to be
Thought it'd be you and me
Standing together at the end of the world
I guess that's not what you want
I guess that I should just move on
But tell me how am I to move when I can't even breathe?

This not how you make love
This is not what we signed up for
This is not how it's meant to be
This is how you start a war

This is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how you start a war
How to start a war, how to start a wa-a-ar
How to how to start a war, how to start a wa-a-ar

You thought I'd abandoned you
Thought that I'd stranded you
But I was right there holding your hand
But I guess you didn't see
Everything that I thought we would be
I guess I never thought that you would ever leave me here all alone

This not how you make love
This is not what we signed up for
This is not how it's meant to be
This is how you start a war

This is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how you start a war
How to start a war, how to start a wa-a-ar
How to how to start a war, how to start a wa-a-ar

Bombs are falling
While we're stalling
I'm still trying
Why are we fighting?
Words destroy us
Played and toyed us
I still love you
Don't you love me too?

This not how you make love
This is not what we signed up for
This is not how it's meant to be
This is how you start a war

This is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how you start a war

This not how you make love
This is not what we signed up for
This is not how it's meant to be
This is how you start a war

This is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how, this is how, this is how-how
This is how you start a war
How to start a war, how to start a wa-a-ar
How to how to start a war, how to start a wa-a-ar
