[Lyrics]

Even though I'll never need her
Even though she's only giving me pain
I'll be on my knees to feed her
Spend a day to make her smile again

Even though I'll never need her
Even though she's only giving me pain
As the world is soft around her 
Leaving me with nothing to disdain

Even though I'm not her minder
Even though she doesn't want me around
I am on my feet to find her
To make sure that she is safe and sound

Even though I'm not her minder
Even though she doesn't want me around
I am on my feet to find her
To make sure that she is safe from harm

The sun sets on the war
The day breaks and everything is new

The sun sets on the war
The day breaks and everything is new

everything is new...
new... new... new...

The sun sets on the war
The day breaks and everything is new
