"Wherever Love Goes"

(Lyrics by Lauren and Mark Arnest. Copyright 1998.)

 

When they talk about the gods

Going best to worst

Ain't it strange that they never mention the first

(And my personal favorite)?

 

Let us now give praise to love

And each have his say

'Cause every god, every god has his day.

 

You got high love

You got low love

I'll tell you why love

Is the finest god of all.

 

What does loving give you?

It gives a sense of shame and pride.

A lover would rather die

Than have his guy

See him run and hide

 

That is why an army

Made up of lovers and their beaus

Would vanquish all their foes

(Military drums, fifes etc.)

Wherever love goes.

 

(chorus) You got high love

You got low love

And this guy love

Is the highest love of all.

 

(Phaedrus alone, spoken) Here's the low love:

(sung) Where does loving take you?

If necessary, straight to hell

A man will brave the depths so Stygian

For a sweet youth callipygian

 

Even ladies will go to Hades

If it will benefit their maties

The gods will bless them all

Wherever love goes

 

(chorus) You got high love

You got low love

This is why love

Is the finest god of all.

 

(Phaedrus) Now I've told you all I know

And I haven't lied

Loves' the source of all of our shame and our pride

(Especially the latter).

 

And this virtue when it comes

Makes everything okay.

'Cause every god, every god has his

(chorus) Every god, every god has his

(Phaedrus) Every god (chorus) has his day.
