Can anyone help with the transcription of this song. I have difficulty hearing what he's singing at the sentences with a asterisk.

I'm no native and his accent warps the vowels quite a bit. Anyway, my guess:

1) I can't sing a love song anymore
2) while the war has just begun

It would be safer to wait for a second opinion though.

I didn't see any asterisks, but I feel like he might be saying "where the war has just begun." The vowels seem to fit better considering his accent.

Thanks to everyone. The official lyrics has been released and it seems to be:

"...
That I can't sing a love song anymore
There's something going on
And I can't turn my back on it anymore
...
Is it in my head?
Am I the only one?
Is it in my head?
Where the war has just began?"

Only official lyrics can save non-natives from misunderstanding. Regular smile

"Began" is probably a typo, because that's not grammatically correct - it would be "begun."

We can say "the war began" or "the war has begun," but not "the war has began."
