When Love Prevails

© 2014 Greg Lambert / Donovan Tucker

Finding shelter from the storm
And the water, the rising water
In a fight that must be won
For survival we move on

Clouds roll in and darkness looms
Somewhere a flower comes to bloom
The fragile veil of life is torn
In the struggle love is borne


When the broken hearted reconcile
When a mother calms her angry child
When every dreamer finds the sun
When love prevails, peace will come


There's a battle raging somewhere
If only it could end tonight
A little girl prays for a father
Please come home....
In a quiet voice she whispers
Speaking to the ties that bind
Standing strong in her belief
That peace will come...
And He will come...


Finding shelter from the storm
Somewhere beyond the fog of war
May God's embrace keep us from harm
When love prevails, peace will come
When love prevails, peace will come

This is really a gem!! Probably my favorite I've heard of yours Greg!! Lyrics are wonderful, and the vocal is excellent! Love the way the drum beat drives the song! Love everything about this song!! BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Pro production all the way. Extremely well written, performed, recorded, mixed and mastered. I classified it as Country, as did you according to the genre selection for review, but to me, its more of a hybrid...almost a pop ballad. Vocals are steller.

nice message, positive , good instrumentation . Overall feel fits the lyrics .
The vocals tell the story nicely .

I got pulled in to this story and had to listen again while I wrote. Nice tune. John Legend popped into my head.
