Let Love Reign

Album: Sinematic (2019)
  • Last night I had a dream
    Woke up in a cold sweat
    Was that thunder that I heard
    Or bombs dropping from a jet?
    Out the window, I saw smoke
    Flowin' down the street
    All that's left was graffiti
    Buildings warped from the heat

    Was this just a nightmare
    Or maybe a warning sign? (Maybe a warning sign)

    Let love reign
    Let love reign down
    Let love rise
    From the underground
    Oh, let love reign
    On your enemy
    Let love reign down
    Over you and me

    In my time, we've seen heroes
    Shot down before our eyes
    In my time, I've lost loved ones
    Never got to say goodbye
    In my time, we've bowed our heads
    In sorrow of mankind
    Raisin' hope that tomorrow
    There may peace of mind

    As world leaders take us
    On a guided tour of Hell (on a guided tour of hell)

    Let love reign
    Let love reign down
    Let love shine
    On the dark side of town
    Oh, let love reign
    On a refugee
    Let love reign down
    Over you and me

    There's a rose that will not wither
    There's a bough that will not break
    Is what you hold most precious
    At the bottom of the lake?
    There's an angel of darkness
    And an angel of light
    We got one on the left
    We've got one on the right

    By the light of burning crosses
    In this beautiful, broken world

    Let love reign
    Let love reign down
    Let love rise
    From the underground
    Oh, let love reign
    Like John Lennon said
    Let love reign down
    For the tears that we shed

    Oh, let love reign
    On your enemy
    Let love reign down
    Over you and me Writer/s: Robbie Robertson
