about

I have witnessed some friends finding the year 2020 to be the breaking point for their relationships. I may have also watched a few too many Netflix dramas and ended up writing this song.

lyrics

POST-WAR ©The Belle Sounds/Noëlle Hampton

This year’s trying to kill us slowly
We hold on day by day
I’m moving like a soldier
through the muddy mess of what we can’t unsay

And we find we’re not in sync anymore
Everything is different around here post-war
And we know we’re not in love any more
It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war

You should have treaded lightly
You know I’m like a charged landmine
I count from one to ninety
Just to see if you change your tone this time

And we find we’re not in sync anymore
Everything is different around here post-war
And we know we’re not in love any more
It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war

I know this left marks on both of us, both of us
And I’m missing that spark from both of us, both of us

This year was unexpected
This year has made a mess of things
There’s nothing left connected
It’s a war that no one wins

And we find we’re not in sync anymore
Everything is different around here post-war
And we know we’re not in love any more
It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war
And we find we’re not in sync anymore
Everything is different around here post-war
And we know we’re not in love any more
It’s busted and we’ll never get it back post war
