Love and War
She was old enough to know that something's wrong,
But still too young to put a finger on,
The reason she was never satisfied,
or the darkness buried deep inside.

She thought that he could ease her troubled mind,
But he wasn't moving forward with the times,
The ring, the house, the kids, the life, the dream....
Went slipping by, like a mountain stream.

She'd left it all unspoken, assumed the deal was done,
So when the rules were broken there was no smoking gun.
She'd walked into an ambush that was obviously there,
In love and war, all is fair,
In love and war, all is fair.

Ignored the truth, though it was plain to see,
He could not be in love and still be free,
'Cause he'd give an arm to hold her by his side,
and then he'd bite one off to run into the night.

Never gave him reason to complain,
Never did she cause him any pain,
But sometimes he'd just rather be alone,
and then he couldn't find the words to bring her home.

He can't blame her for leaving, and wished he'd done the same,
But he was trapped by inhibition, and crucified by shame.
The overwhelming silence was more than she could bare ,
In love and war, all is fair,
In love and war, all is fair.
