Tyler's P.O.V

She is not serious. She did not just break up with Harry. I know, I'm supposed to be Clara's best friend, and I am. But being her best friend, I'm know what's good for her. Harry is good for her.

He is not serious. He did not just give up on Clara. Yes, Harry is also one of my best friends. And being one of my best friends, I know what's good for him. Clara is good for him.

Neither of them can be serious. This is complete and utter bullshit. They should know by now. Love is a battlefield. If they don't know that, then they are stupid. And I know that neither of them is stupid. I don't know why I'm so worked up about this. I've seen Clara go through bad break ups plenty of times. But this time it's different. I let out a sob and everyone in the room turns to face me. This time. This time it's love. And I can't let anything get in the way of my best friends falling in love. They need each other and it's bullshit that they're letting a conflict get in the way. Complete bullshit.

"This is bullshit!" I shout through my tears. "You know it is, Harry! You love each other and you're letting her go! You've been through so much together and now you're giving up? Now?"

"Tyler--"

"No, shut the fuck up, Harry!" I scream. "I don't want to hear your fucking excuses! This is wrong and you know it is! You need to get her back! I don't want to see you until you figure something out! Because this is complete bullshit and you know it. So fucking fix it!" I run out of the room and then out of the house. I can't. I fucking can't. I hail a taxi and have him drive me home to Liam's flat. I run upstairs and pull out my guitar because that's the only way I know to get rid of the disgusting, stomach-churning feelings I'm experiencing. 

Don't try to explain your mind

I know what's happening here

One minute it's love and suddenly

It's like a battle-field

One word turns into a

Why is it the smallest things that tear us down

My world's nothing when you're gone

I'm out here without a shield

Can't go back now

Both hands tied behind my back for nothing

Oh no

These times when we climb so fast to fall again

Why we gotta fall for it now

I never meant to start a war

You know I never wanna hurt you

Don't even know what we're fighting for

Why does love always feel like ...

a battlefield

a battlefield

a battlefield

Why does love always feel like

a battlefield

a battlefield

a battlefield

Why does love always feel like--

"Ty?" Liam says hesitantly as he walks into our bedroom.

"What?" I sniffle, wiping away my still-falling tears.

"What's really going on here?" Liam asks. "I know you well enough by now. This isn't just about Harry and Clara."

"I don't want to talk about it," I close my eyes and try to contain myself.
