Lyrics

You sent me to a war, that I did not want to fight.
I went and did what you told me to.
I came back a stranger to myself.
Now you’re gone and another man makes the calls.

I did what I was told.
I did things there I don’t want to remember…
Remember.

Oh, I just want to go back…
To a time when I was a little boy…
And I played out in a field.
The wind blew through my hair.
The sun shone down on me.
The sounds of children echoed in the air.
Oh, that’s where I want to be.
Oh, that’s how life should be…
Should be…
Should be.

All I have now are these vile memories of the things I’ve seen, things I’ve done.
I was cruel when I did not want to be.
And now it’s too late, it’s all been done.

I did what I was told.
I did things there I don’t want to remember…
Remember.

Oh, I just want to go back…
To a time when I was a little boy…
And I played out in a field.
The wind blew through my hair.
The sun shone down on me.
The sounds of children...
Sounds of children…
Sounds of children…echoed in the air.
Oh, that’s where I want to be.
Oh, that’s how life should be…
Should be…
Should be.
