Lyrics

You gave your heart to a soldier, he wore it out in the rain
Yeah, you gave your heart to a soldier, he wore it out in the rain
And now it’s stuck out there in the muddy old trenches
Drowning in the soldier’s pain.

I wasn't wearing a suit of armor, so you got right inside
No, I had no suit of armor, so you climbed right inside
You lit a fire in all these chamber rooms
Where the soldier used to hide.

And then I rode off to the frontlines, and left your love exposed
Yeah, I rode off to the frontlines and left your love exposed
Under a sea of poisoned arrows, I disappeared
From the life that we’d composed.

This ain’t no rebellion
This ain’t no civil war
When you showed me how
Your heart took a bullet for me
I knew what I was fighting for.

Then, I dreamed we rode white horses across a battlefield
Yeah, I dreamed we rode two snowy white horses across a battlefield
There were no scars from all the bloodshed there
No secrets to conceal.

Then I returned your heart as a soldier, we boarded up the armory
Yeah, I returned your heart as a soldier, and we boarded up the armory
Then we locked up all the ammunition that you found inside of me
Yeah, we locked up all the weapons there and you tossed away the key
Because you gave your heart to a soldier…
