Splendid Little War
Eric Daum 2010


I can't understand what you see in him
If you really saw anything in me
One is grace and the other sin
In your personal Theology

Once again I face the stress
Of another suitor at your door
Like a fleet that's in distress
We're drifting towards a rocky shore

I am just the pawn
For the game you have in store
The battle lines are drawn
For this splendid little war

You say you love me more or less
I don't believe that less is more
You tell me that I must confess
That's an edict that I can't ignore

I must exorcise your curse
Not sure how much I can endure
I don't know which is worse
The symptom or the cure

I am just the pawn
For the game you have in store
The battle lines are drawn
For this splendid little war

Somehow I got it wrong
Yet you're the one I still adore
The velvet blinds are drawn
You're a splendid little whore
