Alicia Keys Holy War Lyrics

If war is holy and sex is obscene

We’ve got it twisted in this lucid dream

Baptized in boundaries, schooled in sin

Divided by difference, sexuality and skin

Oh so we can hate each other and fear each other

We can build these walls between each other

Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick

Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked in

Yeah we can hate each other and fear each other

We can build these walls between each other

Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick

Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked

Oh maybe we should love somebody

Oh maybe we could care a little more

So maybe we should love somebody

Instead of polishing the bombs of holy war

What if sex was holy and war was obscene

And it wasn’t twisted, what a wonderful dream

Living for love, unafraid of the end

Forgiveness is the only real revenge

Oh so we can heal each other and feel each other

We can break these walls between each other

Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick

Keep yourself open, yourself open

Yeah we can heal each other and feel each other

We can break these walls between each other

Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick

Keep yourself open, you’re open

So maybe we should love somebody

Maybe we could care a little more

So maybe we should love somebody

Instead of polishing the bombs of holy war

What if love was holy and hate obscene

We should give life to this beautiful dream

Cause peace and love ain’t so far

If we nurse our wounds before they scar

Nurse our wounds before they scar
