lyrics

We're Breaking up caught in a bind that’s our scenario
Steady pressure squeezing tight we get so emotional
We’re losing grip we’re bound and tethered bout to break the line
If looks could kill we’d die together – and give an eye for eye

you say its day I say its night we just cant agree anymore
u say its wrong i say its right keep getting in this tug of war

come on let me in your corner and take off your body armor
maybe we should join our forces our love is like a tug of war
You know we don’t need defenses The pain in love is often senseless
U know we should join our forces and end this tug of war

U Go in on me I take the blows the hitting way too low
Gets hand to hand it’s toe to toe when we settle up the score
We’re Drawing lines we never compromise
The innocent caught in the middle / just have to pick a side

you say its day I say its night we just cant agree anymore
u say its wrong i say its right keep living in this tug of war

come on let me in your corner and take off your body armor
maybe if we join our forces our love is like a tug of war
You know we don’t need defenses The pain in love is often senseless
U know we should join our forces and end this tug of war

Bdg

Maybe if we pull in the same direction
We could put our mind on one objective
Theres no greater force than the force of a love connection

Tug o war what we fighting for
Tug o war what we fighting for
