Lyrics:

Love’s Like Holding Guns

What part of give a little don’t you get, it’s not a riddle
Hearts get hard when they’re scarred in the middle
Cause I give and I bend; make emotional investments
I haven’t seen a dividend

What have we become
I think we’ve been worn thin
We’ve been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We’ll only bleed again

Late nights, fierce fights ravage us like termites
Eating through foundations of relations that were tight
Human nature is a beast - no laws no leash
Leaving nothing but the rubble at our feet

What have we become
I think we’ve been worn thin
We’ve been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We’ll only bleed again

I fed your sickness, you fed mine
But we were young and we were blind
To what this thing called love would do
You damaged me, I damaged you
And now that we have reached the end
Is nothing left to save my friend?
It’s darkest right before the dawn
It’s cold but I’m still holding on
Cause I’m convinced this love is real
It’s in my bones like melted steel
I feel it when we disconnect
I feel it when we resurrect
It shoves us down, it pulls us back
Relentless, unswayed maniacs
This may be insanity
But real love never leaves

What have we become
I think we’ve been worn thin
We’ve been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We’ll only bleed again
Bleed again

What have we become
I think we’ve been worn thin
We’ve been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We’ll make it through again.
