Once I was a soldier
and I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
and I brought home fresh meat for you
Once I was a lover
and I searched behind your eyes for you
Soon they'll be another
to tell you I was just a lie
and sometimes
I wonder just for a while will you ever remember me
And though you have forgotten all of our rubbish dreams
I find my self searching
through the ashes of our ruins
for the days when we smiled
the hours that run wild
with a magic in our eyes and the silence of our words
and sometimes
I wonder just for a while will you ever remember me
remember me, remember me
