Back before the war

Stacks of paper, my name in bold print
Yours beside it on this document
Too many lawyers, too many angry words
So much we didnt say, so much we never heard
Do you remember
When I was all that you were living for
Back before the war

Back before the broken vows
The shattered trust, this empty house
When nothing really mattered but us
Back before we climbed too high
My dreams were yours, your dreams were mine
Back before we fell so out of touch
Back before the war

Childrens laughter trailing down the hall
Tiny footsteps, God how I miss it all
Its not as simple as whos right and whos to blame
How could we fly so hight to be shot down in flames
Do you remember
When you were all that I was living for
Back before the war

Back before the broken vows
The shattered trust, this empty house
When nothing really mattered but us
Back before we climbed too high
My dreams were yours, your dreams were mine
Back before we fell so out of touch
Back before the war

Stacks of paper, I guess this where we sign
Strange how your signature so closely matches mine
I never dreamed our love would ever come to this
Avoiding each others eyes still craving your tenderness
Do you remember
When love was all that we were living
Back before the war
Back before the war
