Love Goes To War

This song is by Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes and appears on the album In The Heat (1984).

(B. Rush)

Dawn never came this morning
While we were loading up and taking aim
Triggered off with no warning
Passion just burst into flame

Clearly, talks have broken
Good relations will now be erased
Domestic policy has failed
And home has turned to rubble
Oh it's a terrible waste

When love
When love goes to war
Baby, when love
When love goes to war

Our cause has been abandoned
And now the goal is to hurt and attack
No clear winner will emerge
And what was precious cannot be brought back

Doing permanent damage
Fire's to far gone to cease
I'm getting out while I still can
Before you drop your bombs on me

When love
When love goes to war
Baby, when love
When love goes to war

Love
When love goes to war
Baby, when love
When love goes to war

And just like any war there are survivors
Who carry the scars, become a little bit wiser
Some will forget and let peace be reinstated
And some will always keep their hearts barricaded

When love
When love goes to war
Baby, when love
When love goes to war
Lucky to survive
When love
When love goes to war
Such a shame such a waste
When love goes to war
Senseless, senseless
When love goes to war
When love goes to war
Yea
Such a terrible shame
