DutPoet - The Veteran (Lyrics)

The Veteran

I met a guy who thought he could fly
Lost in his never ending dreams
Has overwhelmed the contingents
Yet suffering from war disease

He gave me a chance and soon we’d be friends
And he told me he was ill
Time’s running out and his clock turns around
Soon it could be standing still

He started to dream of distant lands
And he drank, and drank
And he believed he could fly
But he fell, he fell
And he knew he’d never die
Unless he learnt how to be alive

So we decide to use the night
Look around and find a path
Every kind of pain behind
No more fear or drugs or wrath

The clouds in the blue look strangely new
Like reflections of our souls
It feels so real that his wounds seem to heal
And we float like guardian ghosts

We start to go to distant lands
And we dance, and dance
And we believe we can fly
Our wings beat, and beat
And we know that we could die
But at least we felt alive

Night is over, morning near
And I get up with sudden fear
Cause the old man disappeared
Separated several years (let ring)

I’ll start to dream of better lands
Getting mad, and sad
And I’ll jump off a wall
And fall_

I’ll start to dream of better lands
Getting mad, and sad
And I’ll jump off a wall
And fall, and fall
And I know I’ll never die
Until I find a way to be alive
