Erasure The Soldiers Return Lyrics

Last updated: 06/12/2012 11:00:00 AM

Slow the years go by
They stole your man off to war
Will you see the child
As you sing battle song
And it pains me
To think of the soldiers plight
I will pray
For your God to guide you home

And she cried for the soldiers return
Despair of feeling alone for so long
By the light of a candle that burns
For his life
For the day of the soldiers return

Hear the cannons fire
Lost voices echo in the night
See the spoils of war
Young men are falling (ooh)
Hear the drummer
Marching over the hill
Love returning
And the graves of the battle are still

And she cried for the soldiers return
Despair of feeling alone for so long
By the light of a candle that burns
For his life
For the day of the soldiers return

Hear the drummer
Marching over the hill
Love returning
And the graves of the battle are still

And she cried for the soldiers return
Despair of feeling alone for so long
By the light of a candle that burns
For his life
For the day of the soldiers return

(Young men are falling)
