lyrics

In the center of the battlefield
She sang me off to sleep
My wounds were red like roses
Her arms a canopy

She set my fears upon the clouds
And left them to the wind
And turned my eyes up to the sun
Into her ear I sang

Oh my love, my love
The ghosts are calling me to sleep
Oh my love, my love
I've started wars to find my peace

So I cried to her for meaning
And I cried for all I knew
She said, "there's no room for meaning
"There's only room for truth"
And the sun will rise tomorrow
And just as quickly it will fall
In the nighttime you'll reach out for me
To find that I am gone

Oh my love, my love
The ghosts are calling me to sleep
Oh my love, my love
I've started wars to find my peace

I'm stranded in the chaos
Of the morning that we made
Tears cling to my fingers
The dawn is cloaked in gray
At the will of gravity
I let my body fall
'Cause there's nothing here to keep me
And I'd sooner die than crawl

Oh my love, my love
The ghosts are calling me to sleep
Oh my love, my love
I've started wars to find my peace
