I metI met a man in Sydney.
His shoes were torn and worn.
I looked down to my feet.
My shoes were clean and new.
I took these shoes off my feet.
I gave them to this man.
But those shoes were too small.
I met a child in Denver.
She never owned a doll.
I carried one in my handbag.
I no longer needed that doll.
I passed along this doll.
It fell and hit the ground.
But it was no longer a doll.
I met a woman in Paris.
She begged me for change.
I dug among those cards.
I pulled out all my change.
She smiled brightly at me.
I put it in her basket.
But it was the wrong currency.
I met myself in Berlin.
I saw in reflection there.
I cried at the very sight.
I could not help them.
I did all I could for them.
All was never enough.
But I could only disappoint.
A man that could not speak.
He saw my tearful eyes.
He hugged me tightly to comfort.
he showed me so much kindness.
It never went in vain.
My kindness never went in vain.
It was really, truly enough
RememberThe gunshots echo through our ears.
I'm used to it now after these many years.
This is a war to end all wars.
Its time to close the disputing doors.
My commands are given, and I charge into action.
My allies now break this battlefield into a fraction.
Bullets flash past me.
Mud, death and decay is all that I can see.
I hit the ground, shot gun in hand.
I have to survive to claim this land.
I am here for my mother country England.
I can't let her fall in a bitter end.
I get to my feet, rush into fire.
This battle has become so much more dire.
I feel a burn deep in my chest.
I lay my hand upon my breast.
Liquid crimson flow on my skin.
I guess this is it for my heroic win.
They drag me through the field with grace.
These nurses can't even see my face.
I am matted with Mud.
I am covered in blood.
My life is flashing before my eyes.
I lie on this stretcher as I begin to cry.
I see my mother's soft, satin hair.
I see how much my father could care.
I see my wife, dressed in all white.
Under these stars(Chorus)
I'm just gonna keep on telling myself
that I won't be alone forever, I will find
my way to you, Darling I need you.
I live for the thought that you lie under
the same night sky. We both look up at
the same stars tonight. Looking up with
one beholding eye. I can't give up,
I have to keep up the fight.
No way can I give up on love right now.
Your out there for me, I'm out there for you.
I'll find you one day i just do not know how.
One day I know that I'll know what to do.
Theres a writer living inside my soul. I see
the world in a different light. Sometimes I
see things that make me feel so cold. But
one day you will be the light in my night
Don't hold me up to the sky. Don't compare
me to the cover page. Knowing your out there
stops these tears that I cry. I have time to
spare when I am at such a young age.
Keep in Touch!
