Lyrics

THE LOVE YOU LEAVE

VERSE 1:
STARING AT MY LITTLE GIRL PEACEFULLY SLEEPING
SHE'S SUCH A PERFECT EMPTY SLATE
WONDERING WHAT I'LL SAY THE DAY SHE COMES WEEPING
AND ASKS ME TO EXPLAIN HATE
CAUSE SHE LOOKS TO HER LEFT AND SHE SEES
PEOPLE DYING FOR PEACE
JUST TO LOOK TO HER RIGHT AND SEE MORE
PEOPLE PRAYING FOR WAR
IF SHE ASKS ME FOR THE TRUTH, I JUST MIGHT SAY


CHORUS:
I DOUBT THERE'LL EVER BE PEACE
NOT EVERYONE WILL EVER BE FREE
THERE ARE ALWAYS PEOPLE CRYING
EVERYDAY SOMEBODY'S DYING
SOMETIME IT'S A STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE
BUT TRY TO DO GOOD EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE
CAUSE ONE DAY THOUGH YOU WILL BE GONE
THE LOVE YOU LEAVE WILL CARRY ON
THE LOVE YOU LEAVE WILL CARRY ON

VERSE 2:
SO MANY BROKEN BRANDED HOMES
MAMAS LEFT RAISING FAMILIES ALONE
THEIR KIDS ARE CRIPPLED BY THE PAIN
CONVINCED THAT THEY'RE TO BLAME
IF YOU ASK ME FOR THE TRUTH, I'D HAVE TO SAY

REPEAT CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
WHEN I SIT HERE ROCKING MY GIRL
LOOKING THROUGH HER EYES LOOKING AT THE WORLD
NO DOUBT I'VE GOT TO BELIEVE
THERE'S MORE GOOD IN HER THAN EVER WAS IN ME
AND I GET A LITTLE BIT HOPEFUL ONE DAY
WE MIGHT NOT HAVE TO SAY
WE MIGHT NOT HAVE TO SAY

REPEAT CHORUS:
