Godspeed Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It's January 1970, do you remember me?
You put me on a boat across the sea in the name of victory
But much to my surprise when I arrived
There was no welcoming committee
Instead there was a man for me to kill
And now I see how this is all too real

Then I saw him standing with a bayonet
And as I ran toward him he hardly broke a sweat
When I took his life he fell to his knees
And as his eyes began to fade he whispered softly

Godspeed this letter away from here
I've sealed it with my tears and stamped it with my fist
And Godspeed this letter away from you
My work down here is through
I'm on my way to better days and so are you

And in his pocket there I saw the picture of his children and his family
And I began to realize this person I despised
In actuality was not much different from myself
We probably could have taught each other many things
And now I know it's much too late, although I couldn't hesitate
I checked his gun and his chamber was empty

Then I saw him standing with a bayonet
And as I ran towards him he hardly broke a sweat
When I took his life he fell to his knees
And as his eyes began to fade he whispered softly

Godspeed this letter away from here
I've sealed it with my tears and stamped it with my fist
And Godspeed this letter away from you
My work down here is through
I'm on my way to better days and so are you

Ohh, we know not what we've done
And, ohh, we know not what we've done

Godspeed this letter away from here
I've sealed it with my tears and stamped it with my fist
And Godspeed this letter away from you
My work down here is through
I'm on my way to better days and so are you
