soldier lyrics – angus and julia stone

i met him down by the bay,
he said life is a stranger
that wont go away.

he took me by surprise,
and i felt for the first time,
what its like to be alive

i’m a soldier,
but i don’t know how to fight.
i’m your best friend
but i’m scared to see you tonight.
i’m the darkness,
but i want to be the light,
oh how i want to be,
oh how i want to be.

i met him down by the sea,
said i look like someone he knew.
i said i don’t know anyone,
so how could i possibly know you.

he touched my hand,
finally i understand
what it means to be here with you.

i’m a soldier,
but i don’t know how to fight.
i’m your best friend
but i’m scared to see you tonight.
i’m the darkness,
but i want to be the light,
oh how i want to be,
oh how i want to be.
