Casualty Of Love
Mama used to tell me tales

'Bout a part of town

Where people cry the blues

Most everyday

She said don't go down there boy.

You know, love will cut you down

And you ain't yet a man, hear what I say

She said listen to me, son, it's so

Let me tell ya, I've been down there

And I know

That on love street they've got signs

That say watch for falling victims

Dreams get run down in the night

Lord and yours might be the next one

Down where lies'll cut you deep

And goodbyes are loaded guns

You can take one through the heart

Another Casualty Of Love

But still I had to find out

Just how a love would feel

I got tangled in the arms

Of one gone bad

Now I sit and wait and wonder

As I cry myself to sleep

Why I couldn't heed what my mama said

New her every word rings clear and true

Now I've come to realize what love can do

And why love street still got signs....
