The lyrics to "Love is Stronger than Justice (The Munificent Seven)" by Sting on his album Ten Summoner's Tales.
This is what Sting had to say about the song is his lyrics book:
"One of my all-time favorite movies is The Magnificent Seven. Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, et al., starred in the 1960 remake of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. The plot was transposed from medieval Japan to a beleaguered Mexican village in the nineteenth century. I must have seen it at least seven times. For the purposes of the song, I conflated it with the Hollywood musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which I saw but once.
7/8 time seemed the only logical choice for a time signature, as I attempted to retell both stories in my own fashion" (Sting 165).
