Here we are standing face to face
Neither of us moving from our place
Well I am stubborn
And you stand your ground

Each night I’m caught up in your touch
Each day is never quite enough
You keep me at arm’s length
And stand your ground

And I would give you this here soul to take
If you could offer something in the trade
And I could leave but darling, I would stay
If you’d open up the gates
Haven’t I earned my place in your guarded heart?


I am the braver of us two
I am not terrified to lose
At least I’m taking a shot
While you quake at the thought of giving ground

So I’m gonna lay this thing to rest
If you cannot face my final ask-
To take that sword and shield
To lay them down

And the time has come
To give up the fight
Let me down
Or love me right
