Lyrics:

I sit here waiting for the phone to ring
Someone to come along and change everything
Another life another place in time
A brand new memory where I can shine

When I was a soldier fighting just to hold ya
With all my energy
Oh my dear departed we never got it started
So what's there left for me?
When I was a soldier

I hesitated when the time had come
I played the same string for far too long
A precious moment slipped right through my hands
A firm believer of a second chance

When I was a soldier fighting just to hold ya
With all my energy
Oh my dear departed we never got it started
So what's there left for me?
When I was a soldier

Is there an answer to my questioning?
Someone to come and explain everything
A damn good reason why I couldn't shine
An explanation for the 100th time

When I was a soldier fighting just to hold ya
With all my energy
Oh my dear departed we never got it started
So what's there left for me?
When I was a soldier

Oh my dear, my dear departed
You're the one who never got started
Don't you know all my dreams fell through
Cause I need to go where my heart and soul
Takes me to a place where the music flows
Bleeding from wounds I could not see
When i was a soldier, When i was a soldier
