Battlefield (2011)

I look at you, 

You look at me, 

Lets just stop and savor the moment, 

Appreciate the quiet before the storm, 

I think we were fighting this battle for a long time, 

I think that we were pre-determined to end up this way...

No more thought, 

The blades are out, 

We meet in the middle, 

Common ground, 

Neutral ground...

I loved you once, 

Idolized you, 

Would have died for you, 

...If only you'd asked...

But none of that matters, 

Not now, 

No, not ever.

Right now I just want you dead, 

Right now I just want to get out of this alive...

And as we fight on, 

...I can't help but to remember the bed we once shared...

You're thinking of us too...I can tell...

Maybe a part of me loves you still...

Maybe you still love me too...

I can't think like that...

Or I'll end up dead...

After a while, and we're both so exhausted...

I'm bleeding, 

But so are you...

Sweat, and blood...they mask our tears...

And oh!

You got me good...

But I got you better...

Surprised, you fall...

Dying there, lying there, on the ground...

...Did I win?

Guess I must've huh?

But your eyes are locked on mine...

I can't help it...now I'm down at your side...

No hiding the tears now, 

I hold your hand...

And cradle your head in my lap...

I know I wanted you dead, 

But I didn't know I'd hurt so much...

...My heart the traitor...

You whisper, barely perceptible:

"Good job...I love you, but I'm not angry...always loved you..."

I don't get the chance to say it back...

Because you died after saying that...

...I don't know how much time goes by...

...It's raining now...

I should get up, 

But I can't, I'm still grieving...

Frozen in place...

Here on our final battle field...

I look at you, 

You're eyes stare blankly up at the sky...

And I'm just savoring the moment...
