Story Behind the Song

Didn't they say that love was free?

Lyrics


Mercy, mercy, won't you see what I've become
I see the new day a-coming and I turn around and run
You say the old day is over and the new one's just become
But won't we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun

Oh oh all of my nighttimes and all of my days
I've been looking for something I've been looking through a haze
And I could have done so many things that should have been left undone
But won't we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun

Clap hands
Clap hands

Well I was born into this world so happy and so free
But your kind of loving got a hold over me
Your love is following me, following me like a killer with a gun
But won't we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun?

Cain slew Abel didn't he kill him for a price
And nothing ever comes for free and least of all advice
I've been looking for a reason why I came undone
But won't we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun?

Well didn't they say that love was free?
Didn't they say that love was free?

Didn't they say that love was free?
