lyrics

[The lost soldier]

I traveled and betrayed
Just to see you smile
I have fought and prayed
unmasking this guile

Where are you my love?
not worth more than a louse?
pulling the strings from above
just to find an empty house

everything goes wrong
shattered by sadness
All of this lost in this song

Leaving after the tide
removing traces behind
On a path of a long ride
feeling melancholy grind

Now I am near my goal
reaching the deepest lands
Leaving my heart and soul
just to flee their commands

All of my life thinking of you
dreaming of holding her hands
Now I’m just an old man
biding what’s left of my time
All of my life thinking of you
reaching the end of my sake
Now I’m just an old man
wishing of a second chance
