A fire's all around us

Love in Time of War

So close to having you when the news came through

We're off to battle and my heart's shattered too

The fire's all around us

No more walls surround us

Can love blossom here when flowers lost their roots

A fire's all around us

Falling for you while the world falls apart

Dropping hearts at the door while they're dropping bombs

We can't make it on our own

Fight on the frontlines, we'll come out on top

Love at the forefront but war at the backdrop

We can't make it on our own

Let me love you while the world falls apart

Too much to think about

Not much can fix us now

We're off to battle and we're not shatter proof

The smoke's all around us

No more walls surround us

Can love blossom here when the lies have lost their truths

The smoke's all around us

Falling for you while the world falls apart

Dropping hearts at the door while they're dropping bombs

We can't make it on our own

Fight on the frontlines, we'll come out on top

Love at the forefront but war at the backdrop

We can't make it on our own

Let me love you while the world falls apart

"Don't get attached, anyone can go next"

Because love can't blossom where seeds were never fed

But don't shut me out now

We can still find blue skies in a sea of red

Between love and other monsters

Only one's better off dead

Falling for you while the world falls apart

Dropping hearts at the door while they're dropping bombs

We can't make it on our own

Let me love you while the world falls apart
