Ben Folds Five: Missing the War Meaning

Missing the War Lyrics

All is quiet his tired eyes
see figures jotted down
and clothes all strewn around
the bedroom floor
Now nothing's adding up
and nothing's making sense
she's sleeping like a baby
she doesn't know he wasn't
meant for this

I'm missing the war

    The war is what you finally give up when you realize the relationship is nothing but a struggle, a fight. The war. And missing the war? Missing what was there, even though it was painful a lot of the time. Or so I think. Another amazing song from Ben Folds that merges lyrics w their most perfect melody.
