I am a boy soldier
Look into my eyes
Im tired and older
Than the dead man by my side

I can take your soul
In a flash and a smile
And my home, and my name, and my life
Lie so very far behind me

Every second in no man's land
I hold my life in these small hands
Every day in a world gone mad
Hard to face who I am

Once we were children
Once we played in the morning light
Once we were chidren
One morning they came
The soldiers took us away

I am a boy soldier
See my eyes empty stare
Each day explodes with pain
And its more than I can bare

The ghosts of the slain
Are the shadows in my eyes
And I dream tomorrow will come
And carry me away

Every second in No Man's Land
I hold my life in these small hands
Every day in a world gone mad
Hard to face who I am

Once we were children
Once we played in the morning light
Once we were dreamers
One morning they came
The soldiers took us away
