soldier lyrics – francis dunnery

in every story that you meet
lies a happy ever after
you see it on the people that you greet
if you stop them for a while

say what am i gonna do
if i’m leaving in a fight with you
and how am i gonna fight
you always bring me water
and i need your water by my side

(chorus)
soldier, this is your life
and you cant run
and you cant hide
in the town
and out in the pouring rain
with an aching in your side

and my future is down memory lane
cause the present is much to hard

soldier, this is your life
(end chorus)

across the sand dunes
in a room
there are soldiers on the phone
they’re calling all the people that they love
cause they cant wait to come home

say who are you gonna be
if you’re always waiting there for me
and when will i be free
you say you carried my daughter
and i need my daughter next to me

(chorus)
soldier, this is your life
and you can’t run
and you cant hide
in the town
and out in the pouring rain
with an aching in your side

and my future is down memory lane
cause the present is much to hard

soldier, this is your life

(end chorus)

sail home, get back in my home clothes
sail home, get back in my home clothes

sitting round the fire at midnight
calling all my family on my cell

sail home, get back in my home clothes

hearing all the sounds across the world
sitting in this final h*ll

sail home, get back in my home clothes

and i wonder if i’ll ever get out of here
only gods time will tell

sail home, get back in my home clothes

say what am i gonna do
sail home, get back in my home clothes
say what am i gonna do
sail home, get back in my home clothes
say what am i gonna do
sail home, get back in my home clothes
(repeat)

soldier, this is your life.
