Lyrics

LOVE WON'T LEAVE ME

I TAKE MY ORDERS FROM UNCLE SAM
JUST LIKE MY DADDY DID IN VIETNAM
I'M PROUD TO BE A SOLDIER BUT THERE'S SOMETHIN BAD GOING DOWN
WE'RE TEN MINUTES INTO A FIRE FIGHT
BLINDED BY THE SAND AND THE BLACK OF NIGHT
I'M TRYIN TO FIND SOME COVER BUT I'M PENNED HERE ON THE GROUND
I THINK ABOUT MY WOMAN AND MY LITTLE GIRL
AND I CAN'T LET EM SHED NO TEARS

(CHORUS)

LOVE WON'T LEAVE ME LYIN HERE
LOVE WON'T LEAVE ME LYIN HERE

THE BULLETS BUZZIN BY MAKE AN EERIE SOUND
MY UNIT'S LAYIN HEAVY COVER DOWN
THEY'RE MORE LIKE MY BROTHER'S AND I PRAY THEY'LL MAKE IT THRU
I CLEAR MY EYES TO A WELCOMED SIGHT
OUR CHOPPERS BRING IN ANOTHER STRIKE
BY THE LIGHT OF THE TRACERS I CAN SEE WHAT I GOTTA DO
SUDDENLY I HEAR A FAMILIAR VOICE
SHOUTIN CLEAR, CLEAR, CLEAR

LOVE WON'T LEAVE ME LYIN HERE
NO, NO, LOVE WONT LEAVE ME LYIN HERE

WITH THE SMOKE FROM THE FIRES FILLIN UP THE STREET
I GRAB MY GUN AND SCRAMBLE TO MY FEET
MY HEADS A SPINNIN AND I'M WORRIED ABOUT MY FRIENDS
I FEEL A STING UNDERNEATH MY VEST
SOMEBODY MISSED A SNIPER ON THE ROOF I GUESS
MY BODIES GETTIN WEAKER AND I FEEL MY SOUL GIVIN IN
STARRIN AT THE HEAVENS I FEEL NO PAIN
AS MY FAITH OVERCOMES MY FEAR

AND I KNOW
LOVE WON'T LEAVE ME LYIN HERE
LOVE WON'T LEAVE ME LYIN HERE

Very moving piece and very original idea. Keeping this acoustic was a wise choice. It works really well.
