1. Soldier

From the recording Up Too Late


I am a soldier
In the army of love
Always on the front lines
Without a gun
But I can’t stay in the trenches
I’ll get buried in the dirt
So I, run on to the battlefield
And try not to get hurt
I try to make some ground,
and claim my victory, but I am
Shot down, Shot down, where I stand
Shot down, Shot down, with a white flag in my hand
I am alone here
In my army of one, love
It’s not winter, but it’s cold here
As my fingers find the blood
I try to pray to God, 
But all my voices fail, I am
Oh, there’s no love in war
Oh, is love what we’re fighting for
Oh, I’m trading love for war
Oh, love’s what I’m dying for
And I am
