One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come, he to justify
One man to overthrow


In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love


One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach.
One man betrayed with a kiss


In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love


(nobody like you...)


Early morning, april 4
Shot rings out in the memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride


In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love...
