JORDIN SPARKS - Battlefield

This song is from the album Battlefield(2009), released on Jul 21, 2009.
I loved the power and the energy of the rhythm. The snare felt powerful and made the song really interesting. The vocal was equally powerful and emotional, you could feel the energy rising from her vocals. The choruses felt very heavy and powerful, making a huge impact on the rest of the vocals.

[VERSE]
Em                  Am
Don't try to explain your mind
                    D      Bm
I know what's happening here
Em                  Am
One minute it's love and suddenly
                    D Bm
It's like a battlefield
Em               Am
One word turns into a war
                D               Bm
Why is it the smallest things that tear us down
Em                  Am
My world's nothing when you're gone
             D
I'm out here without a shield
Bm            C
Can't go back now

[PRE-CHORUS]
Am                 G                      D
Both hands tied behind my back for nothing, oh, no
Am                   G                 D
These times when we climb so fast to fall again
D
Why we gotta fall for it now
C         G               D
I never meant to start a war
               Em        D    C
You know I never wanna hurt you
              G                  D
Don't even know what we're fighting for

Em                 Am
Can't swallow our pride,
                    D           Bm
Neither of us wanna raise that flag
Em              Am
If we can't surrender
                    D             Bm
then we both gonna lose what we had, oh no

[PRE-CHORUS]
Am                  G                 D
Both hands tied behind my back for nothing (nothing)

Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again

I don't wanna fall for it now
C         G               D
I never meant to start a war

You know I never wanna hurt you
              G                  D
