"Soldier of Love (Lay Down Your Arms) (Arthur Alexander cover)" as written by Evan A. Rogers and Carl Allen Sturken....
Lay down your arms and surrender to me.
Oh lay down your arms and love me peacefully. yea.
Use your arms for squeezing and pleasing the one that loves you so.
Oh there ain't no reason for you to declare war on the one who loves you so.
So forget the other boys because my love is real.
Come off your battlefield.

Lay down your arms and surrender to me.
Yea lay down your arms and love me peacefully. yea.
Use your arms for squeezing and please cause that's the way it has to be.
The weapons you're using are hurting me bad.
But someday you're going to retreat.

Cause my love baby is the truest you've ever had.
A soldier of love that's hard to beat.
Lay down your arms and surrender to me.
Lay down your arms and love me peacefully, yea.

Use your arms to hold me tight. baby I don't wanna fight no more
Use your arms to hold me tight. baby I don't wanna fight no more.
Oh baby, lay down your arms.
Oh baby, lay down your arms.
Oh baby, lay down your arms.
Oh baby, lay down your arms.
Oh baby, lay down your arms.
Oh baby, lay down your arms.
Oh baby, lay down your arms.
Please baby lay down your arms.

    General CommentYeah, I think this song is about sex too.
    But I think it's about a couple who is fighting ( the girl is mad at the guy ) and he's just saying:
    let's make up and have sex .

    It also sort of reminds me of war?
    That's probably what it was intended to be about.
    I don't know.

    General Commentthis is a cover, cant remember who does the original. it is found as the b-side to "last kiss". fantaaaastic lyrics - anti-war without being over the top, and a beautiful love song at the same time.

    General CommentRecorded by the Beatles in 1994?
    It's a nice song, I've only ever heard this version. Vedder's voice is excellent.

    General Commenti didnt know this was a cover this is the only versoon i heard of it. great song...i think its about the narrator who loves this girl but the girl is in love with another guy and after they break up a different guy but not the narrator "for get the other boys cause my love is real" and hes putting the whole thing to a mettaphore of war. i actually relate to this song a lot
