lyrics

Lest we forget

It’s not what happened out there
All the things that we know
Shooting of guns
And bombs that explode
The feelings you hold
Not able to share
Night terrors scare in the cold dark air
Experiences not shared
only by a few
Who understand nothing
But relied on by you
Family tries but can’t understand
How you came back such a changed man

Didn’t take your life
But it stole your youth
A condemned man
Caught in a moment of truth
It seemed so exciting
When you’re waiting to go
The horror of war
How were you to know?
Experiences not shared
only by a few
Who understand nothing
But relied on by you
Family tries but can’t understand
How you came back such a changed man

Chorus:
(STACE) Brothers and sons and daddies too
We stand on the brink we’re looking for you
Despair for dinner and grief in our hearts
Waiting, waiting, waiting for a brand new start
(FRANCIS) As we stand to attention
With a glass in our hand
Remembering comrades who no longer can
Resighting the ode
And all that it means
Lest we forget all of their deeds

Called on by your country
It’s hard to resist
Comrades and mateship
One raised fist
It all seems so futile
When all have returned
An unfortunate lesson
That never got learned
Experiences not shared
only by a few
Who understand nothing
But relied on by you
Family tries but can’t understand
How you came back such a changed man
