As our hearts lay sleeping,
As our bodies rest,
The Heavens open up for us.
Put down your weapon, child,
And close your eyes,
Because you and your enemies
Are innocent tonight.

I never wanted you,
I never wanted you to go.

There’s a voice inside your soul
That resonates through your skin and bone,
Up through the blades of grass,
Underneath the feet of God’s only son.
The war that you’re fighting
Has already been won.

I just want to survive with you by my side.
With you by my side, I just want to survive.

Crooked mouth, quiet down.
Let your fists come undone.
Miscarried love will be reborn.
When we sleep,
The devil’s arms are tied.

The war that we’re fighting
Has already been won…

I never wanted this,
I never wanted this to go away.
I never wanted this,
I never asked for it,
I never meant to let it go.

I just want to survive with you by my side.
With you by my side, I just want to survive.

    General CommentI think that has to do with a couple that started out not wanting to love each other. They denied it at first, but they fell in love without even realizing it. Through all their fighting, kicking, and screaming, they know they love each other. At first it says, "I never wanted you," but then it says, "I never wanted you to go."

    Also, at one part of the song, he sings, "Let your fists come undone," like she's still fighting him while he accepts the fact that she is the love of his life. And maybe they messed it up too badly, because he claims that he never wanted to let it go. With her by his side, he feels like he's on top of the world.

    I'm not quite sure if this is right. It's just my interpretation.
