"the way war was won" as written by Andrew Hollander, Dana Parish and Girelli....
Runnin' as fast as I can
Can't even see where I am now
Over the soldiers and sand
This wasn't part of the plan
I never see the dawn although I know it comes, yeah

If I ever see blue skies in my town
You know I'll kiss the ground we walk on
If I ever watch fire flies all around
Shinin' like the stars above them

The bullets fly over my head
Just like the words that you said, son
So put down your guns
And that's the way the war was won

Over the edge and beyond
Over the border there's no bombs
Falling on soldiers and sand
Holdin' their hearts in their hands

If I ever see blue skies in my town
You know I'll kiss the ground we walk on
If I ever watch fire flies all around
Shinin' like the stars above them

The bullets fly over my head
Just like the words that you said, son
As you put down our guns
And that's the way the war was won

If I ever see blue skies in my town
You know I'll kiss the ground we walk on
If I ever see fire flies all around
Shinin' like the stars above them

The bullets fly over my head as I lie awake in my bed
I just can't forget what you said, son
As you put down our guns
And that's the way the war was won, was won
The war was won

    General CommentThis is my favorite Your Vegas song, even though it's horrifyingly tear-inducing.

    The "war", which can be taking hypothetically, seems to have no end in sight. It's pretty much saying that to end a war, the first step is to "put down your guns", which can lead to peace. In the end, no one needs to win; all parties win if no one is hurt.
