When Love Comes Down  
Words and Music by John Allee

Blind love
Cupid’s art
Shot through the heart with a poison dart
Nature’s second son
A tyrant sparing none
The blood of life, the power of reunion

It takes some time
To get it right
You say you do when you think you might
And seal it with a kiss
For luck and happiness
Forever his, forever sanctify this

Because when love comes down
It makes the ladies weep
Yeah when love comes down
It lets the children sleep
The undertaker sighs
But he should have a heart
Because when love comes down
It isn’t love that makes us part

You share his bed
You share his things
Fasten the slings to his broken wings
And keeping him in sight
You guard against the night
Where there you both
Dance naked in the moonlight

Because when love comes down
It makes the foolish wise
Yeah when love comes down
It shows up all the lies
The masquerader falls
He’ll try another face
Because when love comes down…

Nor fear, nor sloth, nor jealousy
Injustice, shame, nor cowardice
Nor guilt, nor greed, nor enmity
Can take the place
Can take the place of love
