I've got a girl
She tastes like rain on my tongue
She's got the moon in her hips
And her eyes burn up like the sun
When I'm gone, my girl
When I leave her alone
It ain't nothing that I'm running from

There's war in my blood
I've still got wars to be won

Eyes are so sweet
I don't know what that line was before
Oh I know, maybe something sweet
Somewhere between a flower and a gun
And where my girl is now
Someday that's where I want to be from
But love is a dollar that's already spent
Love is a song that's been sung

There's war in my blood
Love ain't the tune that fills these lungs

So here's my consolation
One opponent is enough
It takes two to go to war
And only one to fall in love

I had a girl
I know precisely what made her run
Her skin looked like the sky
Made my heart beat itself like a drum
Alone from my girl
When I meet her in my dreams
I tell her she'll always be my only one

But there's war in my blood
There ain't a thing that love could have done
There's war in my blood
There's war in my blood
There's war in my blood
There's war in my blood

    General Comment:I'm pretty sure this is the prequel to Betrayal. The third part of the story, Revenge, is out there somewhere but I don't have it yet.

    General Comment:Great, catchy song that is a part of the 3-part murder-song series Jon wrote like you said eltroyo ^

    And i think this is so cute:
    I've got a girl
    She tastes like rain on my tongue

    There doesnt seem to be any real chorus that stands out but that's all right. I suppose it'd be:

    There's war in my blood
    I've still got wars to be won
    and
    There's war in my blood
    Love ain't the tune that fills these lungs
