lyrics

I was a soldier when I was a child
First I was foolish, then I was wise
Oh, for the sorrows I have seen with these eyes
They flow like bloodstreams in the river so mild

I have seen metal pierce skin and bone
I have seen corpses withered and cold
Some were still infants, some weathered and old
And though I am wounded, I am not alone

I have seen fire, and I have seen flood
I have seen evil, and I have seen good
Both sides have suffered on the field where I stood
I crawled from the fallout and rolled in the blood

I was a soldier when I was a child
Some foes were human, and some were divine
But I am my Lover’s, and my Lover is mine
I find my solace with the One who is wild
