Happy #SongLyricsSunday! Today’s prompt is to find a song with “gun”, “bomb”, “knife”, and/or “weapon” in the song’s title or lyrics. This was another prompt where I had to look on several sites and streaming platforms to find a worthy song. There were a few that caught my attention. But there were two that I really wanted to feature: “Love Is A Weapon” by Letdown. and “Love Is The Weapon” by Elephant Heart. Usually, I would pick one song for each week’s prompt, but I love these two songs too much that I had to feature both.
How about you? Which one is your favorite? Listen to both tracks below and let me know what you think in the comments!
“Love Is A Weapon” by Letdown.
“Love is A Weapon” is a 2021 song released by the Chicago-based artist Letdown. This Pop/Alternative Rock artist made his debut in 2020 with the song “Spotlight”.

I write music not only as therapy for myself but for others who feel they are spread too thin, falling short or just not good enough”.
