4. LOVE IS REAL

he was born in 1944 the youngest of the warren boys to go to war
he says i’m in the army draft somehow caught the lottery
maybe vietnam will make a man of me
i will rejoice in hope
i will endure in suffering
i will persist in prayer
for i know love is real
& i’ll pray for you, yeah i'll pray for you
i’ll pray that we’d be back together soon 

she was so in love with him but she could not take the chance
if he don’t come back alive it’s a broken heart romance
so even though it broke her up to break it off between the two
he would go to war with nothing to lose
i will rejoice in hope
i will endure in suffering
i will persist in prayer
for i know love is real
& i’ll pray for you, oh i'll pray for you
i’ll pray that you’ll be safely back home soon
 
well a purple heart from a hand grenade
cut his service short sent home to the states
so he looked her up it was too late
she was married now two kids on the way
God had other plans he would have to wait
ten years down the road she was free again
took her in his arms & her children too
said i love you all i give my life to you
& i prayed for you, yeah i prayed for you
i prayed that we’d be back together soon
i will rejoice in hope
i will endure in suffering
i will persist in prayer
for i know love is real
i know love is real
i know love is real
i know that God is love & love is real
