No Sides Only Hearts

You were once afraid of war
Now it seems you’re afraid of peace
Rubbing a rose in your hand
It’s a gun for someone else

I’ve spent years inside my head
There is only light there
Sometimes it’s good for me
But I can’t sleep when I need to

There are people who mourn
They don’t have to tell me why
Like a song, it is the feeling only
Let her weep, her breath is a memory

She said my life changed her long ago
And now you’re standing here
I don’t know what year it is anymore
I’m still not anything to build upon

Why is it fight for love or for peace
Who says talking about it matters
I can’t seem to find an easy pace
I won’t choose sides, only hearts
