What Love Can Do

Album: Working on a Dream (2009)
  • There's a pillar in the temple where I carved your name
    There's a soul sitting sad and blue
    Now the remedies you've taken are all in vain
    Let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do

    Darling I can't stop the rain
    Or turn your black sky blue
    Well let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do

    Well now our truth lay shattered, we stood at world's end
    There's a dead sun rose in view
    As if any of this matters, a kiss my friend
    Let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do

    Darling we can't stop this train
    When it comes crashing through
    But let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do

    On the bench you lie all is nails and rust
    And the love you've given's turned ashes and dust
    When the hope you've gathered's drifted to the wind
    It's you and I now, friend (you and I now, friend)
    You and I now, friend

    Here our memory lay corrupted and our city lay dry
    Let me make this vow to you
    Here where it's blood for blood and an eye for an eye
    Let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do

    Here we bear the mark of Cain
    But let the light shine through
    Let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do
    Let me show you what love can do Writer/s: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
