Kings of Convenience - Winning a Battle, Losing the War

Have you ever thought that one of the best way to learn a language could be singing a song? Definitely, yes.
But it’s very important reading the right lyrics. First of all: listen to the song.
In a second instance, read the text. And, finally, sing!

Don’t care if your roommates don’t appreciate it!

PS: what does it mean even though? And how do you pronounce it?

 

Winning a Battle, Losing the War

Even though I’ll never need her,

even though she’s only giving me pain,
I’ll be on my knees to feed her,
spend a day to make her smile again
Even though I’ll never need her,
even though she’s only giving me pain
As the world is soft around her,
leaving me with nothing to disdain.

Even though I’m not her minder,
even though she doesn’t want me around,
I am on my feet to find her,
to make sure that she is safe and sound.
Even though I’m not her minder,
even though she doesn’t want me around,
I am on my feet to find her,
to make sure that she is safe from harm.

The sun sets on the war,
the day breaks and everything is new…
