Anna Nalick - Soldier Lyrics

He was a soldier
He always was
He left his city to fight for America
And we fell in love to music
We were just kids
We didn't have time to be sorry for what we did

And I said hey boy
Whatchya cryin' for
It'll be OK in the end
And if this life doesn't give you the love you expect
There's always the next

She was a pretty Texas girl
The answer to his prayers
He called me to tell me he'd fallen in love with her
She sang like an angel
Loved like a friend
And she made my soldier believe he could live aain
When she said


So I'll be a gambler
And He'll be home free
He'll marry Texas and I'll marry melody
So love like my soldier
Fight for what's true
And smile at the gates 'cause their hate don't belong to you

Anna Nalick Soldier Comments
  1. Ada Wong

    Could somebody please explain to me what does "smile at the gates cause their hate don't belong to you" mean? (English is not my birth language and i wonder if there's a hidden sense).

  2. Candace D

    She has such an incredible voice, I took my oldest daughter to see her several years ago she sounds just as good in concert too.  

  5. Alegriaenquidam

    purplekourgra, I am so sorry for you loss. Your soldier was a loss for us all.

    @angusdowling No one really cares, so shut up =D

    @KyrstaShay I think you're confused, in no way whatsoever are all images in some shape or form "free to use because it's non-commercial". There are certain, select images from creative commons with certain types of licensing for that. Now you have images with "All Rights Reserved", and no. you can't use those images without permission of the owner first. (Also usually known as paying a certain fee to use them, unless they're kind people who are charitable.)

  13. Kyrsta Arnold

    @angusdowling That's where you are wrong. There is no profit being made from these photos, so under the creative license, it is not illegal.

  14. Angus Dowling

    Just so you know, saying that you don't own those pictures doesn't make it any less illegal...

  74. Apothtolith

    oh. sad to hear .. sorry

  75. Anna Kivi

    alaamagdy007 just because someone goes off to defend and fight for their country doesn't mean they should die! Plus isn't it better that people go on their own instead of drafting? I'll admit, i hate war and I don't like george bush either, but infortunately there is nothing we can do about it. Eveyone wishes that the world could just remain in peace with no war and no violence.
