Heather Alexander - Close Your Eyes Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I looked across the battlefield,
  • Blood seeping from my wounds-
  • My comrades, they did never yield,
  • For courage knows no bounds-
  • And yet, I thought as I stood there,
  • Of all that it had cost-
  • For what we gained, it seemed not fair ,
  • For all that we had lost-
  • They spoke of honour, faith and pride,
  • defending for our home-
  • Through honour all my friends have died,
  • their faith left me alone-
  • We fought for greed, we fought for fame,
  • we killed too much to tell-
  • The devil and God were both the same,
  • we worshipped only Hell-
  • We fought it seemed for a thousand years,
  • a million nights and days-
  • Sharing one laugh with a hundred tears,
  • seeing clearly through a haze-
  • Then came that day I know not when,
  • beneath a blood red sun,
  • A-top a pile of dying men,
  • they said that we had won-
  • Another tract of land is all
  • the territory gained-
  • Will that ever pay for all
  • the lives here lost or maimed?
  • Bodies lying all around,
  • blood bathing them in red,
  • Their white eyes staring at the sun,
  • these, the countless dead?
  • I looked across the battlefield,
  • blood seeping from my wounds-
  • My comrades, they did never yield,
  • for courage knows no bounds-
