Lea Michele – “Battlefield” Lyrics

It’s easy to fall in love, but it’s so hard to
Break somebody’s heart
What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield

Once lust has turned to dust and all that’s left’s held breath

Forgotten who we first met
What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield

We both know it’s coming, does illusion count for something – we hide
The surface tension’s gotta break, one drop is all it takes to flood out this lie

You and I we have to let each other go

We keep holding on but we both know
What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield

Peace will come when one of us puts down the gun
Be strong for both of us, no please don’t run, don’t run
Eye to eye we face our fears unarmed on the battlefield

We seemed like a good idea

No blood

Will spill if we both get out now
Still it’s hard to put the fire out
What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield

Feelings are shifting like the tide, and I think too much about the future

What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield

We both know it’s coming, does illusion count for something – we hide
The surface tension’s gotta break, one drop is all it takes to flood out this lie

CHORUS

We seemed like a good idea (x4)

  • Alex Aguilar

    Amazing song.

  • Wow

    I really like this one. She sounds so beautiful and has a wonderfully emotive voice.

  • Janet

    Another Flop!

  • love it

    This is a beautiful song, she sounds amazing

  • @loserJanet

    @Janet: congrats you are the fist a$$hole to comment. Her flops are better than you for sure.

  • Janet

    Lovely song by a wonderful artist.

  • Ken K

    Wonderful and easy to relate too. I like it is very simple just her an the piano.

  • Lizzy

    I kind of want to hear an acapella version of this song. Her voice is just so darn gorgeous. I love it.

  • Polka

    this song is beautiful! Lea put a lot of emotion into it, and her voice sounds incredible <3

  • fir sure

    her face is a Battlefield

  • Sophia

    God this is such a snooze fest. Did she write this gem? She says Battlefield at least two hundred times. There are other words in the dictionary, Lea.

  • gladimnotfirsure

    I like it and her vocie is so strong.

  • http://Adhambatarseh Adham Jamil

    It’s A Christmas Miracle !!!

    I Love U Lea Michele, Can’t Wait ‘Til March 4th !!!

  • be nice

    @Sophia: actually maybe 10 times but I guess counting isn’t your forte. Hum a chorus that repeats its self that has never been done before in a pop song.

  • Kelly

    Very nice song. I like the piano and the slow build with other instrument but mainly the piano. She has a great voice.

  • Polka

    @Sophia: she didn’t, I guess it’s written by Sia Furler

  • Swiftie

    Why?

  • so good

    I loved this song, she sounds great and the piano was a nice touch

  • Matt

    @Janet: Another crap you did.

  • Matt

    @fir sure: Goose Bumps!!!

  • living in a box

    nothing special, just another pop song. want to see something inspiring click this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elILetNPyr4

  • kate

    I love it!i really really love it

  • Alexandra

    This about her ex-boyfriend, Theo? Could be a weird coincidence, but it’s his birthday today and this song is obviously about a tough breakup…

  • Theo fan

    @Alexandra: Well since Sia wrote it, it is not about to anyone specific in Lea’s life. But she could probably relate. I always believed Lea/Theo when they said their relationship just ran its course.

  • blah

    @Swiftie: becasue she can.

  • IffyMiffy

    Nothing special though better than the first. She has a voice that is so much better than both of these songs. Pity.

  • Marianne

    That was a lot better than Cannonball. This should have been her first single!!!!

  • Kay

    Absolutely stunning voice!! Wow I really like this song. Great job lea, can’t wait for the full album.

  • Cece

    Beautiful song. Talented singer!

  • Alex

    This song just made my day. So relatable. Love it definitely

  • Ray

    @IffyMiffy: she’s done a pop song, she’s done a ballad…what exactly would be the song to satisfy you?..would you feel like her voice was better suited if she yodelled??

  • Gunny

    @Sophia: You don’t even know if she wrote the song but took the opportunity to insult her anyway? FYI: She did not write the song. She is definitely showing more of her range on this song – great.

  • 1mer

    This song is about a bad relationship, The media and Lea haters will have a field day speculating about her relationship with Cory. I don’t know if I will be able to listen to this song. Just reading the lyrics broke my heart. I know that she said that he had heard all of the previous recorded songs on the album, I would love to know why she chose to release this one second. “Cannonball” was the most perfect song to release first.

  • Gunny

    @Theo fan: I agree, plus they lived on separate coasts and that makes it difficult.

  • Gunny

    @1mer: Artists don’t always have much say about what songs get released first, but I think she did get to pick the first song. But, since Cory did hear this song, I don’t think it was about him. Plus, sometimes it’s not even about a person, it can be a metaphor for something else. Only the writer knows and that is what is so great about music, poems, etc., everyone feels it in different ways.

  • Nikki

    I love it. But I think she still needs stronger hits… I would love to see her like the new Celine Dion, to be honest. Ballads would be HER thing and she totally has ALL the potential, and she can bring uniqueness to the table. I have all my faith in her. I am rooting for her. This song is beautiful, and I can’t wait to see her getting stronger and happier.

  • 1mer

    @Gunny: I agree with you on that and she has been very open about which songs were dedicated to him, but the haters will tear her to shreds. I love her and wish her the best in life. I can just see the headlines now “proof….etc, etc.)

  • hahaha

    No one stays with this arrogant beeeotch for long. How many years will she milk the death of CM?

  • Min

    @hahaha: Probably until Dianna Agron’s newly stitched vagina stretches back out again. Now that’s a fat ass that sure gets around.

  • Cosi

    Gorgeous song, gorgeous voice, gorgeous girl. Happy I pre-ordered the album. Really looking forward to it now.

  • Martin Duff

    Woooow. I’ts a perfect song! Beautiful

  • Gunny

    @1mer: I still can’t quite figure out why people feel the need to write hateful remarks, but they do. The only evidence will come from Lea stating it on video – everything else is pure speculaton/gossip and she didn’t even write the song so why do people think it’s about her life? Oh well – I love it and I love her and I don’t follow her blindly, to be honest I’m not wild about the cover picture for Louder.

  • Rui

    BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Love You Lea <3

  • Zenzen

    It’s amazing, she’s amazing…! Can’t wait for March 4th!

    Were these lyrics stolen from a 12 year old’s diary?

  • lluvia

    AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT

  • Bee

    You know, not every negative comment is about hating on someone. I adore Lea and she has an amazing voice, but neither of her songs have moved me. Cannonball sounded over-processed and over-accented and Battlefield just drags. We have all heard so much better from her and these are just disappointing to me..

  • geneva carrasco

    omg I swear I love lea’s voice soooooooo much
