Pat Benatar - Too long a soldier



Tekst piosenki:

We were the children of `45
   Loaded like pistols and taught how to die
   We looked the enemy straight in the eye (And never surrender)
   Through trenches dug in the back of my mind
   I go over the top time after time
   Me and the ones we left behind (Faces I'll always remember)
   Now there's no fight left within me, but the writing of this wrong
   As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
   Like brothers in blood it seems that we've been -Too Long A Soldier
  
   In the city of monuments, among the flags of all governments
   The order of battle is written in the shadows of a hard black line
   Where people cry for a nations scars
   And heros sleep beneath a blanket of stars
   Too young to die, but never too old to play the general's game
  
   Now there's no life left within them, but the memory lingers on
   As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
   For brothers in blood we sing that we've been -Too Long A Soldier
  
   Eternal flames blow in the wind, I've been Too Long A Soldier
   Captain of the guard I'm coming in, Too Long, Too Long A Soldier
   I've seen so much worth dying for, so little worth killing over
  
   Hey, Hey
  
   Eternal flames blow in the wind, I've been Too Long A Soldier
   Captain of the guard I'm coming in, Too Long, Too Long A Soldier
   I've seen so much worth dying for, so little worth killing over
   Soldiers gone before me, I will surely fade away
  
   My eyes have seen the glory, and the suffering and the pain
   I've been Too Long A Soldier, Too Long, Too Long A Soldier
   I've been Too Long A Soldier
  
   Too Long A Soldier)
   Eternal flames blow in the wind
   Too Long A Soldier)
   My eyes have seen the glory of
   Too Long A Soldier)
   Oh say can you see by the dawns early light
   Oooh, Ooh, Ooh
   Oooh, Ooh, Ooh
