The fighting's over, this time I won
I yelled the loudest, had the biggest gun
She packed up all her bags and walked right out the door
Looks like I won the battle but lost the war

She was speechless once I made her cry
But she had the last word if you count good bye
Now I've got cold silence across the killin' floor
Looks like I won the battle but lost the war

Whose fault is it?
When we can't get along
Let's get back together, darling
Who cares who's been right or wrong?

I'm ready to surrender but she won't talk no more
Looks like I won the battle but lost the war
Will she ever forgive me? Sure is hard to tell
If she'll have a change of heart to save me from this hell

I'm ready to surrender but she won't talk no more
Looks like I won the battle but lost the war
Looks like I won the battle but lost the war
