AMBITIONS OF A SOLDIER

Songwriter: Davonna Carr

Verse 1:

I used to count the hours
Since you’ve been gone
I traced my footsteps
To see what when wrong

I think it was my ego
May have got in the way
There was nothing I could do
To get you to stay

Chorus:

This love was toxic from the jump
I wish that love was enough (was enough)
Ambitions of a soldier (put my armor up)
To defend us from these battles
That always tear us apart

My wounds
Your scars
My pains
Your bruises
My heart
Ambitions of a soldier (to protect my heart)

Verse 2:

Words like ammo
Envy is an enemy (2 voices)
Jealousy sneaks in
We act like frienemies (2 voices)

You say we grew apart
I say people got in your ear (2 voices)
Communications break down
Starting wars
fighting tears

(Chorus/ music break)

Bridge/ Verse 3:

Why do relationships have to be a war
To the victor what is the reward
What am I fighting for

Why can’t it stay calm
Why do we have to have the storm
To keep my heart from being torn
What am I fighting for

Why do relationships have to be a war
To the victor what is the reward
What am I fighting for

(Chorus without bass & more background)

This love was toxic from the jump
I wish that love was enough (was enough)
Ambitions of a soldier (put my armor up)
To defend us from these battles
That always tear us apart

(Acapella with background voices)
My wounds
Your scars
My pains
Your bruises
My heart
Ambitions of a soldier (to protect my heart)
