lyrics

Once upon a time I had a throne
Till I burned it down
Flame and fire in the air
Dust and ashes on the ground

Everybody looked but no one saw
The night we lost it all

Another soldier song
Sing me one about it all gone wrong
How the good guys turned to run
‘Cause we were scared and sick and young
We’re not so strong
But we pretend and so it all goes on
And our secrets in the dark
We don’t sing in soldier songs

In every fairy tale you’re climbing up
On the way you still believe
Darkness isn’t gonna hold you back
Till dark is all that you can see

Then everybody gets to tell your tale
But none are left who know it well

Another soldier song
Sing me one about it all gone wrong
How the good guys turned to run
‘Cause we were scared and sick and young
We’re not so strong
But we pretend and so it all goes on
And our secrets in the dark
We don’t sing in soldier songs

The kingdom comes when kingdoms go
Don’t cry for Camelot
Although we lost a lot
The boys will keep ‘em singing on, and on till kingdom come

And I can’t take…
Another soldier song - Sing me one about it all gone wrong
How the good guys turned to run
‘Cause we were scared and sick and young
We’re not so strong
But we pretend and so it all goes on
And our secrets in the dark
We don’t sing ‘cause we’re not so strong
But we pretend and so it all goes on
And our secrets in the dark
We don’t sing in soldier songs
