Blue eyes fighting the gray eyes
Fighting the tears
Armed to the teeth for a war of words
Reachin' all the years

I advanced across a poppy field
I saw the gleam as you raised your shield
And love screamed down
With the sun behind its back

Our fathers were all soldiers
Shall we be soldiers too?
Fighting and falling like soldiers do

Nothing is clear in this tactical
Unclear war
I can't be bothered to find out
What we are fighting for

No one can win this war of the senses
I see no reason to drop my defenses
So stand fast my emotions
Rally 'round my shaking heart

Our fathers were all soldiers
Shall we be soldiers too?
Fighting and falling like soldiers do

Blue eyes fighting the gray eyes
Fighting the tears
Armed to the teeth for a war of words
Reachin' all the years

I advanced across a poppy field
I saw the gleam as you raised your shield
And love screamed down
With the sun behind its back

I knew once again I was under attack
So stand fast my emotions
Rally 'round my shaking heart

Our fathers were all soldiers
Shall we be soldiers too?
Fighting and falling like soldiers
Fighting and falling like soldiers
Fighting and falling like soldiers do
