Fallen Hero

Eyes full of life and a head full of dreams
Innocent boy he knew there had to be more to life than what it seems
He left all his dreams behind yesterday
Ran away and joined the army today
Never even said goodbye
This is his lullaby

Marching in time
Don’t you dare step outta line
Drill sergeant screams in your face
Listen up and pick up the pace
Sent over seas to where the war takes place
With a gun slung over your shoulder and a scared face

Came back torn and broken, forgetting all that you were told
Reaching out for a hand to hold
You were hurt on the inside
Still setting your dreams aside
Now you found a new life full of smoke and deception
To replace the hidden pain and need for redemption

Spit out that cigarette and step out from behind the lies
Tell me can’t you hear me trying to get through
Remember your dreams and follow them too
Listen when I turn and whisper to you
Your life is not a mistake
I’m amazed by every breath you take

Falling behind, falling out of line
Lost in this world that never stops spinning
With a heart that never stop beating
Never to give up, always gotta put up a fight
Reach out and take my hand, hold on tight
I’m gonna save your life tonight

Standing between us and evil.He'll defend to the very last shell.Carnage all around but still unflinching gun blazing as he fell.The brave soldier once at Heavens gate Yells out."One more soldier reporting sir,and I believe I've served enough time in hell.

This was awesome good job :D
