lyrics

Today we marched for hours to the sergeants hut.
I drank my tea, from a battered cup,
and thought, "what if today is the day my numbers up?"
I'm a long way from home

Everyday the war continues so relentlessly.
Death and bloody clothing fall silently,
and i know with all the good that's left in me,
I'm a long way from home

And the men passed around, a scrap of a poem,
that spoke of the crosses, where poppies are blowin'.
A bright torch that from, failing hands is thrown.
One day we'll speak soundly and safety, at home

If tomorrow comes, should i thank someone?
As i clean and oil, and prepare my gun.
The sky is dark and brooding, and there is no sun.
I'm a long way from home

The distance seems much further, with every concurred mile.
I can hardly hear your voice or remember your sweet smile,
I pray I'll be back, in just a little while,
I'm a long way from home

And the men passed around, a scrap of a poem,
that spoke of the crosses, where poppies are blowin'.
A bright torch that from, failing hands is thrown.
One day we'll speak soundly and safety, at home

I can hear the voices rising, as they find their stone.
Among the many others, i am not alone.
This one's only seventeen, from a small town of his own.
He's a long way from home.

I'm a long way from home.
