When Messiah Comes - Sheldon Harnick lyrics

I was under the waves until love rescued me
And I was a fighter, I could turn on a thread
Now I stand accused of the things I've said

When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

Used to find love under the red sunset
And I was making promises I was soon to forget
She was pale as the lace of her wedding gown
But left her standing when love came to town

Ran into a juke joint when I heard a guitar scream
The notes were turning blue and I was dazing in a dream
As the music played I saw my life turn around
That was the day before love came to town

When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

And I was there when they crucified my Lord
And I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
And I rolled the dice when they pierced his side
But I've seen love conquer the great divide

When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town
