"What Love Can Do" as written by and Bruce Springsteen....
There's a pillar in the temple where I carved your name
There's a soul sitting sad and blue
Now the remedies you've taken are all in vain
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

Darling I can't stop the rain
Or turn your black sky blue
Well let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

Well now our truth lay shattered, we stood at world's end
There's a dead sun rose in view
As if any of this matters, a kiss my friend
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

Darling we can't stop this train
When it comes crashing through
But let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

On the bench you lie all is nails and rust
And the love you've given's turned ashes and dust
When the hope you've gathered's drifted to the wind
It's you and I now, friend (you and I now, friend)
You and I now, friend

Here our memory lay corrupted and our city lay dry
Let me make this vow to you
Here where it's blood for blood and an eye for an eye
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

Here we bear the mark of Cain
But let the light shine through
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

    General CommentI think this message is a bit similar to Two Hearts
    He keeps saying how things are wrong
    "Now the remedies you've taken are all in vain"
    "When the bed you lie on is nails and rust"
    love is the ultimate healer

    General CommentFast, quick song, some hard guitar. The boss layin’ down the law about what his love can do. My favorite part is unfortunately at the end when he aggressively hums for the last 6 ½ seconds. Wish it was incorporated more into the chorus of the song, but still overall, a good song.

    General Comment"Here we bear the mark of Cain"

    Cain in the Bible is clearly the bad seed and God marked him. His lyrics here and elsewhere expose a lot of darkness...hope his soul is at peace. I really don't think it is.
