Ben Abraham - War In Your Arms (Walk + Sing)

"War In Your Arms" is a deep melodious song by an Indonesian-Australian musician, lyricist Ben Abraham's. "War In Your Arms" is part of his forthcoming second studio album due in August via Atlantic Records.

Abraham's most recent release follows his major-label singles, "Satellite" and "Nobody Wants To Hear Songs Anymore" and "Like A Circle".

The nostalgic "War In Your Arms" soars from the ashes of great anguish. “It’s about that point when the relationship is done and you’re trying so hard to hold onto love, it almost becomes like an act of violence," Abraham clarifies the track in a press statement. "All you’re really doing is hurting yourself and hurting the other person, until you can gather the strength to say, ‘Enough. I’m done.’"

"War In Your Arms" was written by Gossling & Ben Abraham , published May 7, 2021.

His first album ‘Sirens’ was primarily a self-release, back in 2014, winning prevalent critical admiration and prominent to a 2016 rerelease through indie label- Secretly Canadian. Showcasing appearances from Gotye to Sara Bareilles, the collection was praised by the New York Times as “a debut of remarkable depth.”

But lover I’m gone cos you were never gonna change
