Tug of War

(Emily Higgins)
TUG OF WAR
By Emily Higgins

This tug of war,
It isn’t what I came here for
I brought my love to you
I thought we’d see it through

We were gonna make a life
I was gonna be your wife
You saw the best in me
Now you wanna set me free

I thought we’d work it out
Now we only fight and shout
Is that all we have to say?
Isn’t there a better way?

Let’s go where the grass is green
Let the river wash us clean
Please, baby, don’t close the door
Let’s stop this tug of war

CHORUS:
Tangled up in black and white
And right and wrong
I never thought we’d end up
In a sad song
I remember when I was your Valentine
Now I’m waiting for a lifeline

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

REPEAT CHORUS:
Tangled up in black and white
And right and wrong
I never thought we’d end up
In a sad song
I remember when I was your Valentine
Now I’m waiting for a lifeline

This tug of war
I can’t take it anymore
I just want us back again
I want what might have been

Can’t we slow this heartbreak down?
Can’t we turn this train around?
Please, baby, don’t close the door
Let’s stop this tug of war

Let’s go where the grass is green
Let the river wash us clean
Please, baby, don’t close the door
Let’s stop this tug of war
