War

Chords and lyrics for War by Jay Sean

 
I would  
Em 
march across the
C 
desert to d
G 
efeat my en
D 
emy
 
And I would  
Em 
lie here in the
C 
trenches with your
G 
picture next to
D 
me
 
And when I  
Em 
told you it’s fo
C 
rever, then it’s
G 
how its gonna
D 
be
 
Don’t,  
Em 
won’t let him just
C 
take the place of
G 
me 
 
(N
D 
o..)
 
Does he really  
Em 
know you like
C 
I know you,
G 
all the little
D 
things?
 
Does he really  
Em 
love you, like
C 
I love yo
G 
u, how can he  
D 
compete?
 
If he makes me  
Em 
fight for you,
C 
die for you,
G 
would he do the
D 
same?
 
This is  
Em 
turning 
 
into
C 
way more than a
G 
game..
D 
 
Now it feels like  
Em 
soldiers in a
C 
war and none of
G 
us are backing
D 
down
 
And I will show you  
Em 
victory 
 
is
C 
mine before we
G 
leave this battl
D 
eground
 
Cause he don’t wanna  
Em 
leave, and I don’t wanna
D 
go
 
And I know just  
Em 
how this battle
G 
goes
 
He don’t wanna  
C 
leave and I don’t wanna  
D 
fight this kind of  
G 
war
 
You know he’s  
Em 
not the man you
C 
think he is; he’s
G 
hiding all his
D 
flaws
 
So tell me  
Em 
what’s the point of
C 
fighting? Because we’ll
G 
all end up with
D 
scars
 
But girl if  
Em 
that’s what I must
C 
go through, then I’m
G 
not prepared to
D 
lose
 
Cause  
Em 
I’ve 
 
already
C 
bled so much for
G 
you 
 
 
D 
(No..)
 
Does he really  
Em 
know you like
C 
I know you,
G 
all the little
D 
things?
 
Does he really  
Em 
love you, like
C 
I love you,
G 
how can he co
D 
mpete?
 
If he makes me  
Em 
fight for you,
C 
die for you,
G 
would he do the
D 
same?
 
Baby this is  
Em 
turning 
 
into
C 
way more than a ga
G 
me..
D 
 
Baby cause we’re  
Em 
soldiers in a
C 
war and none of
G 
us are backing
D 
down
 
And I will show you  
Em 
victory 
 
is
C 
mine before we
G 
leave this battl
D 
eground
 
Cause he don’t wanna  
C 
leave, and I don’t wanna  
D 
go
 
And I know just  
Em 
how this battle
G 
goes
 
He don’t wanna  
C 
leave and I don’t wanna  
D 
fight this kind of  
G 
war (No, No..)
 
Getting kind of sick of this  
Am 
battle
 
Wish I could take it back to when I  
Em 
had 
 
you
 
I’m always thinking that I can  
D 
have you, just let him  
C 
have 
 
you
 
It’s getting kinda hard to con
Am 
vince 
 
you
 
After all the shit that we’ve  
Em 
been 
 
through
 
Why would you let all this  
D 
happen?
 
You gotta choice to  
C 
make it stop
 
It’s already  
D 
going too far..
 
Girl we’re  
Em 
soldiers in a
C 
war and none of
G 
us are backing
D 
down
 
And I will show you  
Em 
victory 
 
is
C 
mine before we

He don’t wanna  
C

He don’t wanna

Chords and lyrics for War by Ben Folds Five

Em 
The war is over
G 
and I’ve won
C 
But at what cost?
Em 
My wounds are open
G 
and I’m bleeding
C 
Look at what I’ve lost
Em 
Eyes 
 
closed
G 
like I’m ready to die
C 
I’m waiting for a sign
Em 
My friends are dead
G 
with bullets in their heads
C 
Victory is mine
 
G 
I don’t wanna fight your war  
D 
anymore
Am 
I wanna go back
C 
to 
 
peace
G 
I don’t wanna fight your war  
D

Am 
Leave me out
C

C 
I’m lost and cold
Em 
The captain did it and
G 
found me to blame
C 
Now what can I do?
Em 
you wouldn’t try
G 
to shoot me now
C 
If you knew the truth
