"War Torn" as written by and Nicole Atkins....
Maybe I've been fooling myself
For thinking you should come back
And my last letter's going to break
All of the bridges we've spent years to make

All I can do is explain
All of the reasons I cannot stay
I've been to the front lines
And now there's no trace of hope left inside

I've been taken too far
I cracked when I tried to press my luck
Hoping you'd come pick me up
But my heart is war torn, war torn

If one's born into battle
And doesn't know any other kind of life
How could the battle seem so bad
When its all you've known and all you've had

I've been taken too far
I cracked when I tried to press my luck
Hoping you'd come pick me up
But my heart is war torn
War torn
This love is war torn

    General CommentSo good! Reminds me of Warborn by TBDM, totally unrelated, anyway, Nicole Atkins is an angel and her voice is solid gold. This song is beautiful, go out and buy Neptune City immediately if you have not already. It's for your own good!
