LyricsEdit

Do you remember standing on a broken field,
White crippled wings beating the sky,
The harbingers of war with their nature revealed,
And our chances flowing by

If I can let the memory heal,
I will remember you with me on that field

When I thought that I fought this war alone,
You were there by my side on the frontline,
When I thought that I fought without a cause,
You gave me a reason to try

Turn the page I need to see something new,
For now my innocence is torn,
We cannot linger on this stunted view,
Like rabid dogs of war,

I will let my memory heal,
I'll remember you with me on that field

When I thought that I fought this war alone,
You were there by my side on the frontline,
And we fought to believe the impossible,
When I thought that I fought this war alone,
We were one with our destinies entwined,
When I thought that we fought without a cause,
You gave me the reason why

With no-one wearing their real face,
It's a whiteout of emotion,
And I've only got my brittle bones to break the fall

When the love in letters fade,
It's like moving in slow motion,
And we're already too late if we arrive at all

And then we're caught up in the arms race,
An involuntary addiction,
And we're shedding every value our mothers taught

So will you please show me your real face,
Draw the line in the horizon,
Cos I only need your name to call the reasons why I fought

When I thought that I fought this war alone,
You were there by my side on the frontline,
And we fought to believe the impossible,
When I thought that I fought this war alone,
We were one with our destinies entwined,
When I thought that we fought without a cause,
You gave me the reason why
