Tips & Ideas

I’m standing in the station,
I am waiting for a train,
To take me to the border,
And my loved one far away,
I watched a bunch of soldiers
Heading for the war,
I could hardly even bear
To see them go;

Rolling through the countryside,
Tears are in my eyes,
We’re coming to the borderline,
I’m ready with my lies,
And in the early morning rain,
I see her there,
And I know I’ll have to say
Goodbye again;

And it’s breaking my heart,
I know what I must do,
I hear my country call me,
But I want to be with you,
I’m taking my side,
One of us will lose,
Don’t let go, I want to know,
That you will wait for me
Until the day,
There’s no borderline,
No borderline;

Walking past the border guards,
Reaching for her hand,
Showing no emotion,
I want to break into a run,
But these are only boys, and I will never know,
How men can see the wisdom in a war…
