Does anybody know what happens to love
When peace turns into war?
Does anybody know what happens to love
When it can't be found at all?

Can somebody tell me
How the world could be so blind?
Does anybody know what happens to love
When love runs out of time?

I can still remember
The last time we fought
The lines were drawn and quatered
In the calm before the storm

Can somebody tell me
How the world could be so blind?
Does anybody know what happens to love
When love runs out of time?

Does anybody know where the love of god goes
When the bombs begin to fall
Does anybody care or even know
Or have they seen too much before

Can somebody tell me
How the world could be so blind?
Does anybody know what happens to love
When love runs out of time

When the fighting's over
And you've evened up the score
You can't turn back the tables
To the way they were before

Can somebody tell me
How the world could be so blind?
Does anybody know what happens to love
When love runs out of time?

Can somebody tell me
How the world could be so cruel?
Does anybody know what happens to love
Or is love somebody's fool?

    General CommentI remember hearing an interview with Simon on Radio 2 a few years back and he said something about a friend calling him from either the Bournemouth or Brighton peace marches (can't remember which) but just getting a lot of the atmosphere down the phone from what he heard.

    Thus, it does appear to be about the war in the east and such.
