A TRIBUTE TO ALL SOLDIERS ! This song is not about the Politics or the Rights or Wrongs of War, Just the story of serving soldier and what they endure 365 days a year !

"The Idea for the song came after watching a documentary about Life (and Death ) on the Front line in Afghanistan and Iraq.."
Another soldier crossed the line
Never saw that hidden mine
A flash of light – expression grim
Body torn – limb from limb..

A dream serene – the passing of a life
Leaves another grieving wife..

Young man young man
Was it ever in the plan
Those nights you spent – in early spring
The shells that made your tender ears ring..

Sitting by the campfire light
Thoughts lost in the night
You're going home – way too soon
Another corpse beneath that strawberry moon..

Young man young man
Was it ever in the plan
You're going home – way too soon
Another corpse beneath that strawberry moon.

It's a job – he used to say
Just a way to earn his pay
Never thought – he'd die like this -
no mothers arms – no girlfriends kiss..

Young man young man
Never thought he'd die like this..
