You're so young as you fight,
Guns in your arms,
Trying so hard to make the world right,
Heading off to war trying to be calm.

Heads held high,
Guns go off - so do alarms,
Fear around you,
Nightmares haunt you in later years,
You cry so often - big bloody tears.

All of brave ones dead and gone,
You held your best friend
while he died in your arms.

All the memories swim your head,
Rest now and don't despair.

Shit thrown at you in the towns,
A war hero hits the ground!

Be at peace - your peace is found.
