[*]*[*]*[*]*[*]*[*]*[*]*[*]

(Xena's camp. Gabrielle is cooking by the fire. Joxer sits on a rock
and looks dreamily into nothing, while Xena tries to talk to him.)

Xena:

So, Jox, you think he's pretty

But don't judge by what you see

Watch your heart, you know he'll steal it

And one day he is gonna break it



(With choir)

Because he is

War

War

War

Joxer he is

War

War

War



You say next to Ares

Apollo is nothing at all

And you turn your eyes to the sky

Not seeing what he's really like



(with choir)

Because he is…



I know, you want him

But your heart's so fragile

And I know you adore him

But have you seen under the cover?



(with choir)

Oh, Joxer he is…



(Joxer smiles, shakes his head, and tells her that he's not that bad:)



Joxer:



Xena, I know you care about me

But I know, that so does he

You say he's got not heart or soul

But Xena you are so wrong



(With choir)

And I know that he is

War

War

War

But Xena he's the

One

One

One…



And even though he might seem rough

I know inside he's not that tough

And one day he'll hold me in his arms

And we'll never ever be apart



Because I love

War

War

War

All I want is

War

War

War…





(Music, changed view from the camp to Ares' temple at the Olympus.
Said War God sits on his throne, dagger in hand, looking two parts
lonely, one part pissed, one hundred percent mushy. See the picture?
Good.)



Ares:



Oh this is so silly – I'm a war god

For heavens sake, I don't do

Mushiness and love or whatever

You wanna call it – I don't do it



(With choir)

Because I am

War

War

War

I only do

War

War

War



But he's got something special

I don't know what it is

So fuck me I confess it

I've never felt something like this



(With choir)

Although I am

War

War

War

Do you think he'll love

War

War

War?



(Shakes his head bitterly)



Of course he can't who am I to wish it

I'll go and make a war in Corinth instead

I'll forget about my baby and go on with my life

Though it right now feels like someone

Stabbed me with a knife



(WITH CHOIR for heavens sake)

Yes I know I am

War

War

War

He will never love

War

War

War



Yes I know I am…



(Choir softly sings "War, war, war" over and over again, music and
light fades. Last picture of Ares on his throne, saying the last
words:)



Will you ever love

War

War

War?



The End.

A/N: I know this sucks. You don't need to tell me that. Tell me
something else so I'll get happy?
