Bow Promise

Love of War

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
How it was meant to be
I know how it’s meant to be
But it isn’t at present
Got stuck in the same routine
That we began to barely speak
Passive aggression and resentment standing at the peak
Infiltrating our foundations

[Chorus]
It was love, it was love
That brought us together
And if it’s real love
Then let real love be the reward
Of this war, of this war
We gotta know what we’re fighting for
Of this war, of this war
We gotta know, we gotta know
Oh oh

[Verse 2]
What made us think that just because we’re on the train
That we’re going the same way
Disconnected while in the same lane
Looking for ways to stay sane
Because we don’t communicate like we used to
Pride made us to afraid to speak up
No I want give into the crumbling of our foundations
I wanna build something new with you
[Chorus]
It was love, it was love
That brought us together
And if it’s real love
Then let real love be the reward
Of this war, of this war
We gotta know what we’re fighting for
Of this war, of this war
We gotta know, we gotta know

[Middle 8]
We are opposing forces fighting the same cause
Oh oh, yeah-yeah yeah
Resisting the imperfections of our bond
Let’s lay down these weapons
And release ourselves from this armour

[Outro]
La-la la la
La-la la la uuhh

La-la la la
La-la la la uuh

La-la la la
Love of war

About "Love of War"

Love of War is about a relationship falling out of love and falling apart. There is tension, resentment and hurt coming from both parties but the woman decides that it’s worth fighting for. Bow Promise began writing the lyrics to this song after deciding to give herself a writing challenge on the train. By the time she reached her destination she had written the verses and chorus while listening to Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation album. She felt that she had Leona Francisca in her head the whole time, drawing from her partner’s style of writing.

The pair later got together and worked on the melody and remainder of the song to the production by Bulgarian producer, Boyan.
