a war inside lyrics – we came as romans

the devil on my shoulder tells me he’s proud of me
that it takes a real man to look out for himself and no one else
i don’t want to believe that
but sometimes it’s easier to just stay silent

i wish i knew how to speak out
i never had a problem with words
but only when talking to someone else
there’s a war inside me that’s all my own
and i need to talk like a king to keep myself afloat
but how much longer until everyone knows?

there’s a war inside me that’s all my own
there’s a war inside me that’s all my own

i should have started to take my own advice
from the moment that i started giving it
but i can only control what happens from here
and if none of this had happened
then i couldn’t have heard…

the angel on my shoulder tells me he’s proud of me
that it takes a real man to live for everyone else before himself
i know i believe it
and it’ll never get easier
but it will always be worth it

there’s a war inside me that’s all my own

i’m still learning to speak out against myself
and stay on the path i truly want to be on
though i’ve lost my way more times that i have wished
my heart is constant and willing

i still believe that we were made for more
that what i’ve been doing lately
this end of depression will be the start of getting back what i have lost
because i had become conceited
but i’m making it back to where i last left off
and so i’ve shown you my heart
will you restore me?
