Song Description

An anti-war, pro-love song.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this on the spot after my best friend from high school called me and told me he was being shipped to Iraq with his unit.

Lyrics

The Answer

Words and Music: Todd Staudinger

See the young man in uniform,
He turned 20 today,
And he?ll be dying tomorrow,
And be flown home the next day?..
He says he?s doing his duty,
And that his Dad did the same,
But does he know the potential,
That he?s throwing away

War is never the answer,
To the problems of the day,
Throw away all the anthems,
That they?ll shove in your face??

See the man on the T.V.
He says war is the way,
Some people call him a leader,
I just call him insane?..
Will he stand in the front lines?
Will he be blown away?
How can one man make decisions,
That will end lives the next day?

Love is always The Answer
To the problems of the day
Life alone is too precious
For us to throw it away??

There?s a peaceful solution,
To any problem we face,
Fighting never solved anything,
And war is never the way?..
After centuries of dying,
For the causes of the day,
You?d think we?d learn our lesson,
You can?t change the world from your grave?..

Love is always The Answer
To any problems we face,
Say a prayer for the young ones
That they don?t die in vain??.
