Family Warzone (Pantoum style)

How can we tell if the battle is lost or won?
We'll know when to stop fighting –
I'm not the soldier I used to be;
I haven't given in, but I fear I'm close.

When should we give up fighting?
I don't feel strong enough to carry on.
I haven't given in, but I fear I'm close.
I want to fight with you on the front line, but I can't.

I don't feel strong enough to carry on.
My first battle could be my last;
I want to fight with you on the front line, but I can't.
Maybe, I'm not week enough to wave the white flag, just yet.

My first battle could be my last,
I can start trying now?
Maybe, I'm not week enough to wave the white flag, just yet –
as long as there is a fight left in you ten there is one left in me.

I can start trying now.
We can get back into the war zone
As long as there is a fight left in you ten there is one left in me.
There are always children on the battlefield…

We can get back into the war zone,
We'll know when to stop fighting.
There are always children on the battlefield –
How can we tell if the battle is lost or won?
