You took to the streets to fight the good fight.

Armed with a placard, then you collapse on my couch at night.

For every battle , there’s the battle weary.

Your’e the activist i can’t resist, Marie.

The struggles you face on a day to day basis make me weep.

But you look so beautiful when you’re asleep.

I can tell you now , you have my support.

I’ll even pay your fine should it end up in court.

The system needs a swift kick from a D.M in the shins.

They say you’re a criminal.But you’re not guilty of anythin’

Before we know it, it’s morning.

It crept up on us without warning.

A mug of herbal tea.Then another day’s protesting.

I’m here with my felt tip pens. A banner, i’m designing.

Just for you, Marie.

Cause i love you, baby.

You’ll be outside Santander bank with a few friends making a stand.

When the Police show up they’ll no doubt take command…

of the situation.

Carted off in a lawman’s van.

But i’ll visit you in jail.

Every week without fail.

And when you’re released, Marie…

we’ll take off somewhere.

For a relaxing vacation.

Living without a care.

I realize i must take care of my baby.

For every battle, there’s the battle weary.

For every battle, there’s the battle scarred.

I’ll massage you, Marie when times are hard.

For every battle, there’s the battle weary.

Must take care of my girl, Marie.

For every battle, there’s the battle weary.

For every battle, there’s the battle weary.

Be it “Save the Whale” or C.N.D.

For every battle, there’s the battle weary.

I’ll always be there for you, Marie.

Cause for every battle, there’s the battle weary.
