    You own this


It was a long, hard battle
Fought across two seas
And the sweet disarray, it suffers me to say
Brought me to my knees

The borders were crossed too
Many skirmishes lost
Oh we can’t turn back now
When we were young
We’d never make mistakes like this

Paper castles made of thoughtless hearts and endless tomorrows
Youths shy of battle with their cardboard swords and slippery shadows


This is the hand I've been dealt this is the way I've always felt
