Need A Lot Of Love

Album: Vigilante (1986)

  • A soldier cut loose in Saigon
    He used to be a farmer just like anyone
    A soldier cut loose in Saigon
    Even to his father he's a violent son

    Someone built a wall in Berlin
    Not to keep them out but to keep them in
    Someone built a wall in Berlin
    A permanent reminder of what's happening

    CHORUS
    We need a lot of love
    Got to take a lot of pain
    You can watch the river flood
    But get washed away the same
    Oh we know that things don't last
    So we use the guiding tracks
    Through the deadly ring of flame

    Smoking in a room in Lebanon
    The hotels serving but the hospital's gone
    Choking in a room in Lebanon
    Many people hurting still the telephones on

    Standing on a street in Belfast
    A city of division widow in black
    Standing on a street in Belfast
    Crunching of the feet on the broken glass

    CHORUS
    We need a lot of love
    Got to take a lot of pain
    You can watch the river flood
    But get washed away the same
    Oh we know that things don't last
    So we use the guiding tracks
    Through the deadly ring of flame

    Repeat Chorus
