Love is War – American Young

I love the honesty in this song.  “Young lovers in a picture frame, ever notice how there ain’t no rain.  Nobody hangs hard times on the wall.”  It’s easy sometimes in this Facebook world we live in to think that everyone around us has their life all put together, and somehow leads a “more perfect” life than we do.  But in reality…everybody’s either coming out of a crisis, currently in a crisis, or heading for one.  No one is exempt from that, although it’s not something we talk about a lot.  Last week was really stressful for me.  Getting stuck in Detroit with no flights home, coming home to my air conditioner broken, spending the busy weekend celebrating with girlfriends for a Bachelorette party, trying to get my life at work back on track before interns come this next week…it feels like a lot to handle sometimes.  What gets us through is our faith, having incredible friends and family to support us, music, reading, and time to relax and unwind.  I’m so thankful for these blessings in my life…

Love is War – American Young
Young lovers in a picture frame
Ever notice how there ain’t no rain
Nobody hangs hard times on the wall
You won’t see it in an 8 by 10
But there’s a storm every now and then
A slamming door down the hall.

Chorus:
Sometimes love is a white flag
Sometimes love is standing tall
Sometimes love is a feather
Sometimes a cannon ball
But it’s worth fighting for (it’s worth fighting for)
Baby, sometimes love is war.

An old couple on a front porch swing
On a walk down memory lane
Been through the fire and back again
Through the clear and the cloudy skies
Still love in each other’s eyes
Sometimes love is war but sometimes you win.  Chorus

Sometimes love is all that can save us
Sometimes love can kill a man
Yeah sometimes love is a soft touch
Or a pistol in your hand.  Chorus

Sometimes love is a white flag
Sometimes love is standing tall
Sometimes love is a feather
Sometimes a cannon ball
But it’s worth fighting for (it’s worth fighting for)
Baby, sometimes love is
Baby, sometimes love is war.
