Story

 

Throw Your White Flag Down is about recognising and bringing an end to futile fighting and instead, surrendering to something, or someone, that’s ultimately a beautiful healing force, or connection.

 

 In this instance the words were written first and Kat came up with this brilliant quirky melody idea, something I couldn't even go close to in my head. Really love the overall idea, melodically and lyrically in this song—I feel they complement each other really well.

Lyrics

V1

I turned my back for a moment

And was under attack 'n' at war

Knew I wouldn’t reach, a place of peace, till you decided

If you were wanting her more, or me

V2

I never signed up for (this) battle

So prove to me that you’re worth the fight

’n’ let the warrior in you, tell her, she might as well go

Delusion led her cry

CH

Throw your white flag down at my feet

Come and meet me here, in between

’cause we’ve fought and we’ve won, when we’ve come undone

No, I just can’t go through that again

So throw your white flag down

V3

Surrender; let’s get back into these sheets

Waiting for an outcome to be stained

Lay here, and soothe these lovers’ wounds 

Wrap them tight, where we can hide our shame

CH X2

Throw your white flag down at my feet

Come and meet me, here, in between

’cause we’ve fought and we’ve won, when we’ve come undone

No I just can’t go through that again

So throw your white flag down

 

At my feet

Come and meet me, here, in between

’cause we’ve fought and we’ve won, when we’ve come undone

I just can’t go through that again

So throw your white flag down

OUTRO

Won’t you throw it down, onto healing ground?

Yes, throw the white flag down

No I just can’t go through that again

So throw your white flag down

Throw it down

On to healing

Ground
