Текст песни (слова) The Killers - Battle Born

Battle Born

You lost faith in the human spirit
 You walk around like a ghost
 Your star-spangled heart
 Took a train for the coast

 When you shine you're a hilltop mansion
 So how'd you lose the light?
 Was it blown by the wind,
 In the still of the night?

 We're up against the wall

 Up against the wall
 There's something dying on the street
 When they knock you down
 You're gonna get back on your feet
 (No you can't stop now)

 I always saw you as a kind of keeper
 A mother to a child
 But your boys have grown soft
 And your girls have gone wild

 From the Blue Ridge to the Black Hills
 To the redwood sky
 The season may pass
 But the dream doesn't die

 Now don't you drop the ball

 Up against the wall
 There's something dying on the street
 When they knock you down
 You're gonna get back on your feet
 (No you can't stop now)

 When they break your heart
 When they cause your soul to mourn
 Remember what I said
 Boy you was battle born

 (No, you can't stop now)
 You was battle born

 When the night falls on the land
 Are you haunted by the sound?
 It's gonna take more than a hand
 To turn this thing around

 Won't you lean it on me?
 Rescue, set me free

 Up against the wall (Up against the wall)
 There's something dying on the street
 When they knock you down (Up against the wall)
 You're gonna get back on your feet
 Cause you can't stop now (Cause you can't stop now)

 Did they break your heart? (Did they break your heart?)
 And did they cause your soul to mourn
 Remember what I said
 Boy you was battle born
 Cause you can't stop now (Cause you can't stop now)

 Come on show your face
 Come on give us one more spark
 Sing a song of fire
 Let's we fall into the dark
 And you can't stop now (No, you can't stop now)

 You never live,
 You never learn
 You never shine
 If you never burn
 The rising tide
 The undertow
 The famine and
 The overflow
 You turn away
 Welcome home
