Lyrics


(We are young)

(We are young)

We are young

(Heartache to heartache)

Heartache to heartache

(We stand)

We stand


(No promises)

(No promises)

No promises

(No demands)

No demands

(Love is a battlefield)

Love is a battlefield

Whoooo-oh-oh....


We are strong

No one can tell us we're wrong

Searching our hearts for so long

Both of us knowing

Love is a battlefield


You're begging me to go

Then making me stay

Why do you hurt me so bad

It would help me to know

Do I stand in your way

Or am I the best thing you've had


Believe me

Believe me

I can't tell you why

But I'm trapped by your love

And I'm chained to your side


We are young

Heartache to heartache we stand

No promises

No demands

Love is a battlefield


We are strong

No one can tell us we're wrong

Searching our hearts for so long

Both of us knowing

Love is a battlefield


When I'm losing control

Will you turn me away

Or touch me deep inside

And when all this gets old

Will it still feel the same

There's no way this will die

But if we get much closer

I could lose control

And if your heart surrenders

You'll need me to hold


We are young

Heartache to heartache we stand

No promises

No demands

Love is a battlefield


We are strong

No one can tell us we're wrong

Searching our hearts for so long

Both of us knowing

Love is a battlefield
