(the futility of war)

Oh, I was born your only son
And I will think of you
Before this day is done

The fires of hell surround me now
So I must fight for freedom
Against their raging guns

In all my life I never said
How much I loved you
In all this time
I never really said I cared

This war is wrong and so
I write these words
Before I give my life to the somme

In all my life I never said
How much I loved you
In all this time
I never really knew you

The fires of hell surround me, oh
The guns of hell will
Take my breath away
From my life this day
The fires of hell surround me, oh
The words I say
Must never disappear
Keep them locked inside your heart

I can hear the piper's song
And it will play for me
Before this day is done

So I will hold my head up high
If I must give my life
To stop their raging guns

Oh, I was born your only son
And I thank God for that and
That that will be done
