OUT OF LOVE
(Les Carlsen & Paul Jackson)

Out of love, out of compassion

When I was reading in the book of light
This touched my soul, I stayed awake all night
The written Word was in my thoughts
The truth I heard opened up my heart
You were lead like a lamb to slaughter
And as you bled, hell got hotter
And as I read my emotions were shattered
As I envisioned your body battered

Out of love, out of compassion
You turned your light on me
To end my misery
Out of love, out of compassion
I found I needed you
No one else will do

When I was walking in the valley of the shadow
It was cold, it was a battle
Word on the street was the code to live by
But now I know it was the way to die
You were led like a lamb to slaughter
And as you bled hell got hotter

Out of love, out of compassion
You turned your light on me
To end my misery
Out of love, out of compassion
I found I needed you
On one else will do

Out of love, out of compassion
You turned your light on me
To end my misery
Out of love, out of compassion
You were lead like a lamb to slaughter
And as you bled, hell got hotter

Out of love, out of compassion
You turned your light on me
To end my misery
Out of love, out of compassion
You ended my misery, my misery
Out of love, out of compassion
You ended my, my misery
Out of love, out of compassion
