"Love Is a Battlefield" as written by Michael Donald Chapman and Holly Knight....
(We are young)
(We are young)
We are young
(Heartache to heartache)
Heartache to heartache
(We stand)
We stand

(No promises)
No promises
(No demands)
No demands
(Love is a battlefield)
Love is a battlefield
Whoo

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

You're begging me to go
Then making me stay
Why do you hurt me so bad
It would help me to know
Do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you've had

Believe me
Believe me
I can't tell you why
But I'm trapped by your love
And I'm chained to your side

We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises
No demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

When I'm losing control
Will you turn me away
Or touch me deep inside
And when all this gets old
Will it still feel the same
There's no way this will die
But if we get much closer
I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders
You'll need me to hold

We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises
No demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

    General CommentTo me, I can see, loosely, a homosexual relationships undertone here.

    All of the things that she's saying could be hinting at not knowing if it was even right at first, with the lines "No one can tell us we're wrong/Searchin' our hearts for so long" though, she made the statement that she found it right, after searching.

    Over and over again, she says "We are strong" and homosexuals have to be with all of the negativity aimed their way. "Heartache to heartache" can imply that the "casualties" of this metaphorical battlefield can relate to each other, and this can easily refer to any number of young people, but, it can also hint that aforementioned people can lean on each other for support.

    I highly doubt that this was the artist's intent, but it's just another angle to look at this.

    General CommentI take back what I said before. Literally, love to the singer is like a battlefield; they have their internal conflicts, but external (ie people disapproving of the couple's romantic relationship) are much stronger.
