I open my hands out to see what I've got
My days slip like coins into a slot they are gone
The shadows lie long
I've been banking on a broken machine
Left unattended like most of my dreams
Rusted components of an unmarked song

We've been staring down the brilliant dream
The sun burns our eyes
We've been fighting for the love of our lives

All around us things come apart
Broken pieces, broken hearts
Fix me, oil me, match me with the next best thing
Person to person, nation to nation
Heels dug in, no communication
Wily time sneaks her weathering

We've been waiting to be held by binding ties
We've been fighting for the love of our lives

And when it breaks down, I beg you don't go
I circle your ship, I'm ready to blow
I try to outflank you with an army of words, I strategize
I am fighting for the love of my life

Iron, water, oxygen, scotch and soda or any combination
Starts the reaction
Is there no mastermind of modern day who can blueprint
A plan to make love stay
Sturdy and weatherproof, ushering in a new revolution

At the drawing board the hopeful ones still try
How can we help it when we're fighting for the love of our lives?
Drawing board the hopeful ones still try
How can we help it when we're fighting for the love of our lives?

SALIERS, EMILY ANN
