lyrics

I heard a news report of a journalist in Mosul who was describing what was happening outside his window. It was a scary and surreal description and I found myself thinking... "What if this happened here in San Antonio and my wife was on the other side of town and I couldn't get to her?" This song was born... from the empathy of what the people of Mosul must be going through.
lyrics
Casualty of Love:

V1
There's air strikes in the city
There's music in the air
There's smoke on the horizon
I'm too shell-shocked to care

CHORUS
There's fighting in the streets
Gun fire coming from above
No matter how I go down
I'll be a casualty of LOVE

V2
The sky outside my window
Has gone real blue
They've been digging up the trenches
And I cannot get to you

CHORUS
There's fighting in the streets
Gun fire coming from above
No matter how I go down
I'll be a casualty of LOVE
