Divide & Conquer Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It was true what they said
About me and you, how we were misled
I was so common, you were not bothered
We dressed it up, divide and conquer
Town to town, we went hard
Parked at the hotel, slept in our car
I’ll tell a joke, you sway and saunter
We found a way, divide and conquer

[Chorus]
Well, I was waiting for some bravery that never showed up
Just messing around with a stick of dumb luck
Dancing on the table just a-cutting it up
Singing in the living room and falling in love
Shut you out ’cause you wouldn’t shut up
Cut me down ’til I couldn’t get up
Laughing at thе brevity of life on the run
Howling ‘causе my dad will never meet my son
Conquer, divide and conquer
We went wading through the water
Lay it on the altar
Dressed for slaughter
Divide and conquer

[Verse 2]
All that time we spent together
What once could fly
Now just a fallen feather
Then the sickness came
Then came the weather
Tossed and torn ’til we came untethered
What did we learn?
What did we reap?
We both took turns
Now the hill’s too steep
I’ll take the boy
You take the daughter
It just made sense
Divide and conquer
[Chorus]
And I was waiting for some bravery that never showed up
Just messing around with a stick of dumb luck
Dancing on the table just a-cutting it up
Singing in the living room and falling in love
Shut you out ’cause you wouldn’t shut up
Cut me down ’til I couldn’t get up
Laughing at the brevity of life on the run
Tore a page right out of “Annie Get Your Gun”
Conquer, divide and conquer
We went wading through the water
Lay it on the altar
Dressed for slaughter
Divide and conquer

[Verse 3]
Can we go back?
To when we both could see
How good it was
How good it could be
Just a nowhere boy
Holding hands with a songbird
‘Fore we were blinded by time
‘Fore we divided and conquered
Can you still see me?
Or are we just myth?
What once moved like water became a monolith
No longer free but somehow stronger
Come back to me, here is my armor

[Chorus]
I was waiting for some bravery that never showed up
Just messing around with a stick of dumb luck
Dancing on the table just a-cutting it up
Singing in the living room and falling in love
Shut you out ’cause you wouldn’t shut up
Cut me down ’til I couldn’t get up
Laughing at the brevity of life on the run
Howlin’ ’cause my dad will never meet my son
Conquer, divide and conquer
We went wading through the water
Lay it on the altar
Dressed for slaughter
Divide and conquer
