FOR THE ONES YOU LOVE
Music & Lyrics by Jeremy Hoop and Rachel Koller
© 2015 Opus Meridian Records & Rachel Koller

Beg your mother, lover, friend, and child
(Come away, come away)
to the cover of the deep, deep wild

Build a home, a world apart from here
(Far away, there to stay)
An oasis on a new frontier
You’ll dream beneath an open sky
(In the light of a night)
Where demons are afraid to fly

Spent counting up the cost
Of lives never lived and lost

As the ones you’ll never know,
the ones you know the most,
reap but didn’t sow
Tied to the whipping post

Ohh, What would you do
What would you do
What would you do
For the ones, for the ones, for the ones, for the ones you love

You’ve run like there’s a finish line
(could it be, didn’t see)
The markings on the dead-end sign
Hold your ears to drown the drums of war
(Shut your eyes, shut your eyes)
They’re beating outside every door

Now you know how much you’ve lied
In the name of the ones who died
You can’t hold the rolling tide (As the ones you’ll never know, the ones you know the most)
From this darkness ain’t no place to hide (reap but didn’t sow, tied to the whipping post)

Ohh, What would you do
What would you do
What would you do
For the ones, for the ones, for the ones, for the ones you love

Will you cower in the corner,
Or turn and face the enemy?
Didn’t ask for this torture
Will you choose to stand or take a knee?

Ohh, What would you do
What would you do
What would you do
For the ones, for the ones, for the ones, for the ones you love
