Last night, I was dreaming about us
We were sitting down by the lake
We were close
I had my arms around you
Out of the corner of my eye
Your hair color changed

You pulled me in
We started kissing
But it felt much different
Felt like I was sinning
I realized it wasn't you
But the scariest part
Was deep down in my heart
I didn't want to wake up

My heart's in a battle
I'm not sure I can win
I'm losing control of my love

I should've been a stronger man
Should've been your soldier
But I chose to wave my white flag
And let her takeover now
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love

It happened about a month ago
I was at a coffee shop
Saw this cutie there
She was reading a magazine
Out of the corner of my eye
Saw her look at me

We started talking innocently
She asked if I was single
Then I felt a little guilty
Right then you called
But I hit ignore
Never did that before
I didn't wanna pick up

My heart's in a battle
I'm not sure I can win
I'm losing control of my love

I should've been a stronger man
Should've been your soldier
But I chose to wave my white flag
And let her takeover now
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love

I never planned to have
An interest in someone else
I only think of you
You're the girl
That gave me something I never felt
I tried to stay true
I'm fighting to keep you first in my mind
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you

I should've been a stronger man
Should've been your soldier
But I chose to wave my white flag
And let her takeover now
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love
I should've protected our love

    General Commenti think this song's meaning is pretty simple ur in a relationship and suddenly your love slips away. And everytime you kiss them you don't feel the love anymore and it makes you feel bad and guilty

    General CommentYeah, it's pretty straightforward. It's about being in a relationship, but realizing you have feelings for someone else. You love whoever you're with, but for some reason, you don't feel the spark anymore.
