Ilse DeLange - Lay Your Weapons Down

There's been a lot of miscommunication lately
A lot of wait and see and too many maybes
And I wanna believe that your faith in me is as strong as it was
When we thought we'd be unbreakable
All the words we say end up distorted
From skinbreak to heartache without warning
And you don't mean it and I don't either, we get so close to being defeated by circumstance
Do we stand a chance to rise above it all
But I feel so small

Lay your weapons down
And I'll take my armor off
Say what we need to say
And love before it's lost
'Cause what we have is real
And real can hurt sometimes
But just because it hurts doesn't mean that we say goodbye
So lay your weapons down

Ooh
Lay your weapons down
Ooh

Feel so uncomfortable in this silence
Behind these invisible walls we build inside us
So what's gonna give and what will it take for us to admit
That we're both gonna break if we stay right here
Don't wanna stay right here


Lay your weapons down
And I'll take my armor off
Say what we need to say
And love before it's lost
'Cause what we have is real
And real can hurt sometimes
But just because it hurts doesn't mean that we say goodbye
So lay your weapons down

Ooh
Lay your weapons down
Ooh

I wanna rise above it all
Will you hold me, just hold me

And lay your weapons down
And I'll take my armor off
Say what we need to say
And love before it's lost
'Cause what we have is real
And real can hurt sometimes
But just because it hurts doesn't mean that we say goodbye
So lay your weapons down

Ooh
Lay your weapons down
Ooh
Lay your weapons down
Ooh
Lay your weapons down
Ooh
