Dar Williams – It's A War In There lyrics

Well you have been kind, and I know it seems hopeless
You smooth the ground, tear the knots all apart
You're helping me move from the inside to the outside
You're trying so hard and I can't even start

It's a war in there
It's a war in there

Do peacemakers go to the same place as soldiers
If you want to make peace, then you gotta find the pain
And you bring your words, but you're just like them,
You're unprepared
Cause you don't know the terrain

It's a war in there
It's a war in there

And don't you know I'll never give you a medal
Made back on stateside in the central time zone
The one that they pin to the outside, to the outside
And it leads you all the way home

(It's a war in there)
(It's a war in there)

But you can hold me now
You can hold me now
