on the street, out in the field, lost in the war

The Field

Mother I love you
Father as well
A night in his armour
Returning from hell
Keep the bed warm now
Fit for a king
I live in the field now
Where everybody
Is waiting for something
And everybody
Is waiting for someone
And everybody
Waiting for something
And everyone...

Son I gotta tell you
It breaks me in two
You're man of the house now
But what do men do
Grow like a flower
Spreading the seed
Find me a field
And leave me in need
Waiting for something
And everybody
Waiting for someone
And everybody
Waiting for something
And everyone...

Daddy's not coming home
That's what she said
Daddy's not coming home
That's what she said
Daddy's not coming home
That's what she said
Daddy's not coming home.

Out in the field
I was digging for you
Mother's so lonely
With nothing to do
Friend is a bastard
But we're not the same
I got your memory
I got your name
Waiting for something
And everybody
Waiting for someone
And everybody
Waiting for something
And everyone...

Daddy's not coming home
That's what she said
Daddy's not coming home
That's what she said
Daddy's not coming home
That's what she said
Daddy's not coming home.

Out in the field
Out on the street
Out in the field
Out on the street.
