When I sing about love and war
I don't really know what I'm saying
I've been in love and I've seen a lot of war
Seen a lot of people praying
They pray to Allah and they pray to the Lord
And mostly they pray about love and war

Pray about love and war
Pray about love and war

Seen a lot of young men go to war
And leave a lot of young brides waiting
I watch them try to explain it to their kids
Seen a lot of them failing
They tried to tell them and tried to explain
Why Daddy won't ever come home again

Daddy won't ever come home
Daddy won't ever come home

Said a lot of things that I can't take back
But I don't really know if I want to
In songs about love, I sang songs about war
Since the backstreets of Toronto
I sang for justice and I hit a bad chord
But I still try to sing about love and war

The saddest thing in the whole wide world
Is to break the heart of your lover
I made a mistake and I did it again
And we struggle to recover
I sang in anger, hit another bad chord
But I still try to sing about love and war

Sing about love and war
Sing about love and war
Love and war

When I sing about love and war
I don't really know what I'm saying
I've been in love and I've seen a lot of war
Seen a lot of people praying
They pray to Allah and they pray to the Lord
And mostly they pray about love and war

Pray about love and war
Pray about love and war
Love and war
