lyrics

WALTZING WITH THE WAR
Sylvia Treminio / Jessica Herring / Monika King / Morgan Ward / Mary Gauthier / Amy Speace

He doesn’t want to hurt me, he doesn’t want to talk
He’d rather put his jacket on, and go out for a walk
He leaves the room in anger, and I know not to ask
I’ll dance with a stranger in the silent aftermath

Waltzing with the war
Waltzing with the war

Sleeps with both eyes open, and I don’t know what he sees
Nightmares from the combat zone, haunted memories
I walk around on eggshells, the mother and the wife
He’s a good man and I love him, I’m in this dance for life

Waltzing with the war
Waltzing with the war

He takes my hand and pulls me close, the music starts as lovers take the floor

Waltzing with the war
Waltzing with the war

He’s a good man and I love him, I’m in this dance for life
