Soldier - Official Lyrics - Iskwé

The changing time
Can get you down
When you try to call her
Will she be around
The land is flat
It's not like home
The stereo crackles
When it gets 4 below
Soldier

Soldier
You've been there so long
You gotta be strong
Soldier
You've been there so long
You gotta be strong
Soldier

The rocking horse
The gleaming sand
The thirsty bird
Who only drinks the colour black
The harvests here
We fight the land
Will you see her again
With that money in your hand
Soldier

Soldier
You've been there so long
You gotta be strong
Soldier
You've been there so long
You gotta be strong
Soldier

On better things
your heart is hung
On better things
your heart is hung
On better things

Soldier
You've been there so long
You gotta be strong
Soldier
You've been there so long
You gotta be strong
Soldier
