Lay Down Your Arms

Somebody save our souls
We can’t afford to lose
You end up hurting me
I end up hurting you

Lay down your arms
Give in to me
You no longer are my enemy
Yeah
Drop your defences and come in peace
Oh, the only way to win is to surrender to me

Here comes another storm
You should be close to me
When you are in my arms
It feels like victory yeah

Lay down your arms
Give in to me
You no longer are my enemy
Yeah
Drop your defences and come in peace
Oh, the only way to win is to surrender

So forget this code of honour
Can’t take this any longer
You’re not here fighting a war alone
I am here on your side

I am not bulletproof
You’re gonna take me down
Just let me in your heart
Come on let’s work it out yeah

Lay down your arms
Give in to me
You no longer are my enemy
Yeah
Drop your defences and come in peace
Oh, the only way to win is to surrender
The way to win is to surrender
The only way to win is to surrender to me
