Soldier's Song

Mother, I'm fine, everything's ok

It doesn't help to worry anyway

I'll be back before you know

And you will be so proud to know

I was strong, I didn't let you down

 

Mother, I lied, this is not for me

I've seen so many people die

and somehow I'm still here

I don't know why I should be

The lucky one who gets to see

Another morning trough these tired eyes

 

Mother, I'm dying nothing more to give

My body breathes but I don't want to live

And the bullet that supposed to go

Inside some poor son's back I hope it

Blows up in my face

so I can say

 

Mother, I died, and you won't have to know

There was nothing left but anger in my soul

I never found my truth out there

I never knew why we were there

I lost my youth but no one seemed to care

 

Mother, I'm fine, everything's ok

It doesn't help to miss me anyway

I'll be in your heart you know

And you will be so proud to know

I was strong, I didn't let you down

 

I didn't let you down

I didn't let you down

I didn't let you down
