You are my hurt locker lover
Keep me walking on a wire
Don't know when you'll blow
So I tip toe through your triggered mine
You fight me but I'm on your side
Defeated, now retreating 

Why you trying to make me your enemy 
All I really need is a little peace
I just wanna be your lover 
Oh, this is not a competition 
So baby why the ammunition 
I don't wanna be the last one standing 

 Choose your battles, babe
Then you win the war
Stop digging your own grave 
There's so much to live for

 Choose your battles, babe
'Cause I'm not fighting anymore
I am not fighting anymore

I try to pick off your red flags 
But dancing up on broken glass
Your mind games hit like glue names 
Your course just like the Kennedys 
But you somehow get me on my knees, defeated 
Not retreated 

Why you trying to make me your enemy 
All I really need is a little peace
I just wanna be your lover 
Oh, this is not a competition 
So baby why the ammunition 
I don't wanna be the last one standing 

 Choose your battles, babe
Then you win the war
Stop digging your own grave 
Within, so much to live for

 Choose your battles, babe
'Cause I'm not fighting anymore, no
I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
'Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby
I am not fighting anymore
If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
I don't wanna fight no more
Anyway, I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
'Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby

If you wanna go, then go (choose your battle babe)
If you wanna stay then stay (then you win the war)
'Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby (stop digging your own grave)

If you wanna go, then go (choose your battle babe)
If you wanna stay then stay (then you win the war)
'Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby
