FALLING OUT OF LOVE WITH LOVE

Falling Out Of Love With Love recorded with Steve Young and Andrew Howell in Frome in 2016.

Saw the news today, dunno what to say

Dropping barrel bombs where the children play

Sell arms to tyrants just because they pay

We’re falling out of love with love today

Yemenis, Syrians, Iraqis, Kurds

All are now victims of misguided words

Those religious partisans tend their herds

Where people once were freer than the birds

I wish they would stop

Falling out of love with love

I wish we could stop

Falling out of love with love

Stop

Falling

Falling out of love with love

My daughter said why can’t we get along?

Why can’t we all sing the same happy song?

All this senseless killing is so plain wrong

People just want somewhere they can belong

Outsiders look on whilst the wild wind blows

When it will end? Well now, nobody knows.

Right across the world we keep on our toes

As all this stupid mayhem grows and grows

I wish they would stop

Falling out of love with love

I wish we could stop

Falling out of love with love

Stop

Falling

Falling out of love with love
