LOVE WINS
(Patrick Jason Matthews/Ross Copperman/Phil Barton)

Ray grew up in east St. Louis on the wrong side of the river
Never knew his dad and his mama had a taste for cheap corn liquor
He started running with a gang despite his grandma's prayers
If the finish line was a chalk outline, he was halfway there
Then one night as he was walking out the door
She threw her arms around him like he was going off to war
And she kissed him on the forehead, whispered three words in his ear
And all that anger he held onto began to disappear

Love wins, no matter what they say
It's bigger than the biggest fear, stronger than the strongest hate
The kindness of a kiss unclenches any fist, it's like a daisy in the barrel of a gun
In the end, love wins

Tommy tattooed his hatred up and down each arm
He shaved his head, those words in red never entered his cold heart
He'd spent his whole life judging people by the color of their skin
White was right, couldn't change his mind no matter what you did
Then one night a gang jumped him from behind
He was dying in that alley when Ray came walking by
And color didn't matter when he reached out a saving hand
And ever since that moment, Tommy's been a different man

Love wins, no matter what they say
It's bigger than the biggest fear, stronger than the strongest hate
The kindness of a kiss unclenches any fist, it's like a daisy in the barrel of a gun
In the end, love wins

When it looks like it's gonna lose
When it's almost dark, those clouds just part
And the sun comes shining through

Love wins, no matter what they say
It's bigger than the biggest fear, stronger than the strongest hate
The kindness of a kiss unclenches any fist, it's like a daisy in the barrel of a gun
In the end, love wins
Love wins
