Listen old soldier wherever you are
The hills or the valleys come near or come far
They say, youth's a treasure, we waste when we're young
So come down from the place where your medals are hung

You're forever returning and learning to fight
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight

Listen old soldier 'cause time doesn't wait
The moon's on your shoulder, the hour is late
There's somethin' there inside you, still calls out to you
And you won't fade away whatever you do

You're forever beginning, barely winning the fight
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight

You're not getting any younger that much is true now
But you've still got that hunger, burning in you now
So what do you do now?
What do you do now?

Listen old soldier to the sound in your ears
Of too many battles for too many years
There's only one thing you've learned in defeat
Losing is bitter and victory is sweet

You're always unravelling, traveling light
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight
Feel just like an old soldier tonight, hmm
