Peace In Our Time Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Hey girl, let's begin again and try to help ourselves
We're like weary warriors who just came back from hell
You can keep your territory, I will stay in mine
Carefully negotiate and leave this battleground behind

All we deserve is some peace in our time
Unconditional love is better, peace in our time

And it really doesn't matter
'Cause the world keeps going round
Just like a roller coaster
If you let it, it will crush you down

All we deserve is some peace in our time
I don't need no sympathy, just some peace of mind

The two of us can't take it
Gotta have a truce so we can start
To pull it back together
Otherwise we're gonna fall apart

I'm tearing up the bunch of angry letters that you sent
The living room's a wreck from all the rows
The atmosphere is stifled with aggression
Ultimatums, deadlines and depression

Oh, we both deserve a better life
This friction's killing me
Don't want to be a Buddhist
But I need some peace and harmony and

All that I ask is some peace in my time
A little bit of understanding peace in our time

And I know that we can make it
But we got to compromise
Don't want no more division
So end this war and live our lives

'Cause all we deserve is peace in our time
Unconditional understanding peace in our time
I'm tearing up the bunch of angry letters that you sent
Peace in our time, peace in our time
