lyrics

I saw you in the dawn
As smoke and fog withdrew
An arrow in your side
As you escaped from view

I cannot remember / I have not forgotten
Who we were before the fray
You would not protect me / You would never never let me
The wounded want to run away

Why fight a war as enemies?
How could we win when we both bleed?

Wound me if you must
But never leave my side
We return to dust
But love will never die

You and I and sword and shield
We belong on bloody field
If we fall we rise and rise again

I heard you call my name
As I would stagger on
Your mouth asked me to stay
Your heart wanted me gone

How could I believe you / You started off believing
We were never worth the fight
I didn't want to hurt you / I tried not desert you
I only wanted what was right

I should have hurt you as a friend
Instead of kissed you as a foe

Wound me if you must
But never leave my side
We return to dust
But love will never die
