Even with your father’s army trailing us
We escaped him
Even with his archer’s bows at our backs
Frank uses the analogy of a father’s army, to describe their forbidden love. They made it through all the obstacles stopping them from being together. Even with odds(archers) against them. The archer reference is like trying to outrun a speeding bullet, a predator etc.
