lyrics

Have you ever considered
The path that a heart takes
The moment a heart breaks in two
It changes the landscape
And makes it a namesake
Forever it carries the name of the one

Love is a minefield
A perfectly fine feeling
That turns on a dime, sealing
The fate of two

The earth becomes mute
Silence pays tribute
Trees become soldiers
Lovesick turns sober
Gravity comforts
A heart that’s outnumbered
The head is a drunkard
Silence is thunder

Have you ever considered
What remarkable hearts can do
After a war is through with it
It bargains the bad for good
And staining the ground it stood
It bleeds for the wound it could not take

I left a limb here
Buried a friend here
I can’t ever get it back

But still there’s a beat
A flicker of heat
A scar to remind us
Of what’s left behind

Love is a minefield
A perfectly fine feeling
That turns on a dime, sealing
The fate of two
