This song is about my wife's love for me through one of the hardest times in our marriage.


Have I run these halls before?
Ran my fingers down these walls before?
Like trenches of a raging war with no defences,
Why'd you have to throw yourself in front of all the promises I made,
The onslaught of my archers keeps me far enough away to never change,

Oo-oo, the battle on the plains,
The battle on the plains of our love.

Have I run my trail so cold that you could never scout me?
This chasing hideouts is getting old,
Can't we just be ordinary?
Where's the boy who won your heart and tried his best to dust a trail and lead?
Just when we were getting to a place where we might see some peace,
