When will you carry me home like the wounded star in the movie
When will you carry me home take it back to the start when you knew me
Cause’ when you talk to me that way, I’ll be a million miles away
I guess it’s just another day in love

We’re battleships, driftin’ in our wee river
Takin’ hits, sinking it’s now or never
Overboard, drownin’ in a sea of love and hate but it’s too late
Battleship down

When will you figure it out that you aren’t always right little darlin’
When will you figure it out that it’s not worth the fight little darlin’
Cause’ when you can’t think what to say, you go and throw it all away
I guess it’s just another day in love

We’re battleships, driftin’ in our wee river
Takin’ hits, sinking it’s now or never
Overboard, drownin’ in a sea of love and hate but it’s too late
Battleship down

But you're too smart and I’m too dumb
With no heart in the middle

We’re battleships, driftin’ in our wee river
Takin’ hits, sinking it’s now or never
Overboard, falling into the ocean
Ship to shore, drownin’ in a sea of love and hate but it’s too late
Battleship down
