Riff: Poliça – “Warrior Lord”

Oct 22, 2013

I can’t find my love/Too far love/And farther baby/And like a warrior/Stand so taller than me/Watch him fight carving words in walls

from Warrior Lord lyrics by Polica

When you get dumped your perspective is all out of whack. So it’s not uncommon to despise your ex one moment, and get all sentimental the next – a comedic juxtaposition if not downright tragic. Channy is cracking at the seems with contradicting feelings, comparing her ex to a heartless warrior.
