neil young 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 prey to the lord 
But mostly they pray about love and war 
Pray about love and war 
I've seen a lot of young men go to war 
And leave a lot of young brides waiting 
I've watched them try to explain it to their kids 
And seen a lot of them failing 
They tried to tell them and they tried to explain 
Why daddy won't ever come home again. 
Daddy won't ever come home again 
I said a lot of things that I can't take back 
But I don't really know if I want to 
There've been 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 
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 struggled to recover 
Then I sang in anger, hit another bad chord 
But I still try to sing about love and war 
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 prey to the lord 
But mostly they pray about love and war 
Pray about love and war.
