lyrics

planes keep on crashing
and lightning bugs ricochet
off my sleeve and into my heart
and i ask them to stay
leave behind a little spark
because sometimes you need some help
out of the dark

and not everything ends well
not everything's a fairy tale
but i'm here to tell you
i've been in the war

not everything works out
but honey, never doubt
i'm gonna fight for us
in the war

push back and away we float tonight
just one more chance to get it right
hold on tight to that tiny spark
let's pull ourselves up out
out of the dark

and not everything ends well
not everything's a fairy tale
but i'm here to tell you
i've been in the war

not everything works out
but honey, never doubt
i'm gonna fight for us
in the war
