World War One song, WWI song
I was shot down in my prime I just wasn't meant to be How this town seems so familiar Sifting through my memory Recall the singing on a Sunday afternoon The war came like a rainfall Blackouts cannot dim the moon. All I want is time to remember All I want is something for the pain Hell is four walls closing in While outside is in flames. Take me home, take me home I heard him say A whisper in the carnage A scream within the fray Known unto God Here lies some mother's son Know unto Lucifer The warlords, every one. All I want is time to remember All I want is something for the pain The padre tried to save him But the padre went insane. All I want is time to remember All I want is a little something for the pain History repeating History repeating again.
