Soldier On

Look out the window, see a girl in the next block.
Don’t speak the lingo. Your heart’s at the tips of her wings though.
Look for a reason why – shouldn’t shout ‘I need you’.
At worst she’d pull the blind. At best she’d grow old with you.
Everything will come to us from others for…
‘To be… is to belong to someone’.
It’s all behind the eyes, you’re scared of goodbyes
You wanted to leave but something just jumped out to test you.

There’s so many reasons why we should keep on holding on
There’s so many people think they want treacle but it’s salt they want.
There’s so many reasons why we should keep on holding on.
She said “Soldier on”.

Want forever? Switch it off and on. What’s forever?
What’s forever once you’re gone?
We’re not reading minds. We can’t change tomorrow.
And all that never died kept laughing through the sorrow.

You wanted to care. You wanted to ‘not’ care.
Your head’s in your hands and a voice out of nowhere said:
‘Soldier on”.
