Handwritten Lyrics

"Love And Peace Or Else" (live from Chicago 1)

"I'm delighted about this one. It's been around since the last record. All we had was an amazing kebourd part of Brian [Eno]'s and a rhythm section Larry and Daniel [Lanois] had worked up. I fought for hours trying to figure out what to do with this fantastic raw track. We cracked it this time." - The Edge, Q 2004

Lay down
Lay it down
Lay your sweet lovely on the ground
Lay your love on the track
We're gonna break the monster's back

Lay down your treasure
Lay it down now brother
You don't have time
For a jealous lover
As you enter this life
I pray you depart
With a wrinkled face
And a brand new heart

I don't know if I can make it
I'm not easy on my knees
Here's my heart, why don't you break it
We need some release, release, release, release, release
We need love and peace
Love and peace

Lay down
Lay down your guns
All you daughters of Zion
All you Abraham sons

I dont know if I can make it
I'm not easy on my knees, lord
Here's my heart, Why don't you break it
I need some release, release, release, release, release
We need love and peace
Love and peace
Love and peace

Baby don't fight
We can talk this thing through
Ill call or youll phone
It'll be me or you
The TV is still on
But the sound is turned down
But the troops on the ground
Are about to dig in
And I wonder where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love
Love
