    • White Flag"
        I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
      Or tell you that.
      But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
      Where's the sense in that?

      I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
      Or return to where we were

      But I will go down with this ship
      And I won't put my hands up and surrender
      There will be no white flag above my door
      I'm in love and always will be

      I know I left too much mess and destruction
      To come back again
      And I caused nothing but trouble
      I understand if you can't talk to me again

      And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
      Then I'm sure that that makes sense

      I will go down with this ship
      And I won't put my hands up and surrender
      There will be no white flag above my door
      I'm in love and always will be

      And when we meet
      Which I'm sure we will
      All that was there
      Will be there still
      I'll let it pass
      And hold my tongue
      And you will think
      That I've moved on....

      I will go down with this ship
      And I won't put my hands up and surrender
      There will be no white flag above my door
      I'm in love and always will be

      I will go down with this ship
      And I won't put my hands up and surrender
      There will be no white flag above my door
      I'm in love and always will be

      I will go down with this ship
      And I won't put my hands up and surrender
      There will be no white flag above my door
      I'm in love and always will be

       
    • You kept on thinking you were only the one, too busy thinking love is a gun. I know the ending before the story's been told. It's not that complicated but you're gonna need a bullet proof Soul,     I was so in love with you
      You rarely see a love that true
      Wasn't that enough for you
      Wasn't that enough for you

      I would climb a mountain
      I wouldn't want to see you fall
      Rock climb for you
      And give you a reason for it all

      You kept on thinking
      You were the only one
      Too busy thinking
      Love is a gun

      Hit me like a slow bullet
      Like a slow bullet
      It took me some time to realize it

      You kept on thinking
      You were the only one
      Too busy thinking
      Love is a gun

      I know the end before
      The story's been told
      It's not that complicated
      But you're gonna need a bullet proof soul

      You kept on thinking
      You were the only one
      Too busy thinking
      Love is a gun

      I know the end before
      The story's been told
      It's not that complicated
      But you're gonna need a bullet proof soul

      You were trigger happy baby
      You never warned me, let me free
      It's not that complicated
      But you're gonna need a bullet proof soul
      Think you got it, but you got all the trouble you need
      I came in like a lamb
      But I intend to leave like a lion

      It hit me like a slow bullet
      It hit me like a slow bullet
