lyrics

I will build my cavalry to take down all your pride
and you will raise an army up to hit me from the inside

The strongest of our swords and shields will not protect us now
all our armor’s useless; where it cracks we know too well

and I’m torn
I want to go back
I want you to hold me like you did

Chorus:
But it’s fighting time and I need to see blood on the floor
either way, if it’s mine or yours
don’t you step back, it’s too late to ask what for
sink in your teeth, it’s fighting time

Leave your war horse stabled and I’ll keep my soldiers home
all you need is two small words to deal the final blow

and from here
right on the edge
can’t we go back to before I said

Chorus:
That it’s fighting time and I need to see blood on the floor
either way, if it’s mine or yours
don’t you step back, it’s too late to ask what for
sink in your teeth, it’s fighting time

Bridge:
My heart is frozen, inches from broken
if it finds yours, it’ll be worse
will you be waiting, if I can’t make it
telling me right through that door

Chorus:
It’s fighting time and I need to see blood on the floor
either way, if it’s mine or yours
don’t you step back, it’s too late to ask what for
sink in your teeth (2x)
It’s fighting time
Will you fight for me

about

Lara Ruggles Boulder, Colorado

After 3 1/2 years of sweat, pain, tears, love and actual blood, Lara Ruggles released Cynics & Saints on Immersive Records in October 2015.
FEMMusic: “…the most honest album I’ve heard since James Taylor or Joan Baez. Every single song exposes and elevates her.”
PopMatters: “…the 29-year-old combines Americana and lavish 1970s Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter fare with the confidence of a master."
