lyrics

Soldier I heard you climbed those walls, went back to your island.
But you ain’t got muscles and you’re not so tall, you never could hold me.

Did you find your wife, your child, your husband and your lover and the darker part of your pale, blue eyes?

When you rode the boat, did you stand outside in the weather, did you laugh at the sky and feel a little wild?

How was it when they came for you? Were you down on the rocks by the water? Eyes stuck on the tide?

Were your pockets full of pine needles and small little stones, smoothed down by your thumb, and did your pride fight back, though you knew they had the right, and the papers, and the doctors and the law on their side?

Dear soldier. Soldier dear.
