A beautiful song dedicated not to those who lost their lives fighting for the freedom of their country but for all men and women that served and made sacrifices in doing their duty. May all their hopes and dreams live on in us forever
NOTES
Lyrics :
Soldier, I see your picture’s torn and faded from the light
Soldier, as our memories fade were we wrong or were we right

And tell me, (tell me) as you were crawling what hopes and dreams, were left in store
And tell me, (tell me) as you lay fallen was it really worth fighting for

Soldier, I see from your picture you were young and free and brave
And Soldier, do you lie silent in some forgotten and lonely grave

And Is it true, (is it true) age will not weary you nor take your mind nor steal your sight
And Is it true,(is it true) mankind’s a better place for the life you gave that night

Soldier, I see from your picture you did not know what was to be
And soldier, lest we forget my friend you gave your life to me

We know its true,(we know its true) age will not weary you, nor take your mind
Nor steal your sight
And yes it true, (yes its true ) mankind’s a better place for the life you gave that night

Soldier, (soldier) your pictures shining, yes its shining from the light
Soldier, (soldier) your pictures shining, yes its shining, shining from the light
