Battle Lyrics

by Missy Higgins

I don't need a slap in the face
I'm already at the bottom of the sea
Should have known this armour was heavy
When the battle was declared by me

But you weren't listening too hard
Under every word's a jaded heart
And you weren't listening too hard
Now were you?

Can you pull your head out a moment
And try to find a second just to breathe?
I was trying to be a picture
A pillar of solidity you see?

But you weren't listening too hard
Under every word's a jaded heart
Now give me your best
And I'll take it, feel it, breathe it
Then watch me throw it back to you

'Coz you weren't listening too hard
No, under every word's a jaded heart
Now give me your best
And I'll take it, feel it, breathe it
And watch me throw it back to you

Back to you
Back to you
