It’s hard dark you a have a bull prove is,
As you can walk straight with a bull in your chest,
Another man down with the flag defoe,
It takes a lot of love and comin’ out of cold.

Two ..and I want to see you cry,
Not the same can be safeless..,
Yes by love ..and hold,
It takes a lot of love and comin’ out of cold,
It takes a lot of love and comin’ out of cold,
Mmmm, mmm, mmm.

Looking at the pictures upon the sheft,
Feel I’m in shadow sad,
22 years till the fears so ..
It takes a lot of love and comin’ out of cold,
It takes a lot of love and comin’ out of cold,
It takes a lot of love and comin’ out of cold,
It takes a lot of love and comin’ out of cold.

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm.

    General CommentThis is a very beautiful song and probably my favorite on the Mission Bell album. I saw Amos Lee in concert recently and he played this song solo and told the story of the song before he lay it down. Amos was visiting wounded veterans at Walter Reed hospital and he was inspired by the stories of the wounded soldiers he met. One young vet in particular was bedridden and his mother sat by him at his bedside. Amos walked over and talked to them and was so moved by the mother's devotion to her her son that he wrote this song.

    For me the lyrics are simple but breathtaking. They speak of human mortality and the real cost of war. The brave men and women who serve our nation overseas everyday come home with wounds, not all visible. They deserve our love and support, even if we can't always understand what they are going through.

    Lyric CorrectionLyrics are very wrong, but I can't make out much more than you did.
    According to another source at songlyrics, they got something more sensical:

    Yes, I dug you in a bulletproof vest,
    But you can't walk straight with a bullet in your chest,
    Another man down with the flag to fold,
    It takes a lot of love and comin' out of cold.

    Two.. and I never want to see you cry,
    Not the same can be said for his brand new bride
    Inspired love but no hand to hold,
    It takes a lot of love and comin' out of cold,
    It takes a lot of love and comin' out of cold,
    Mmmm, mmm, mmm.

    Looking at the pictures upon the shelf,
    Feel I'm in shadow, feeling sad
    22 years, still you feel so old
    It takes a lot of love and comin' out of cold,
    It takes a lot of love and comin' out of cold,
    It takes a lot of love and comin' out of cold,
    It takes a lot of love and comin' out of cold.

    Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm.
