Lyrics

Troops

Written By: Grace Solero

Lose who you are
when you're so far
walking too far
breathing the wind
even the sky
things are so far
from where you are

In this land of no one
blood and bodies playin' with mud
and I keep asking why
all are marching with a gun
deep in my bones I miss, I miss, I miss you

Oh! The sun is here again
Oh! It's givin' life to death

I've been walkin' lonely
now the ground is harsh and shiny
I hear all people around
suffering and asking where you are
all I know is we're still waiting, waiting, waiting

Oh! The sun is here again
Oh! It's givin' life to death

We are troops of today
how much... how much
will this cost

I'm dreamin' of your lips
how long... how long
before I'll meet you

Oh! The sun is here again
Oh! It's givin' life to death
Oh! All around is clear
Oh! It's givin' life to death

You're too far from where you are...
are
