Bareilles, Sara - Song For A Soldier Lyrics




Ooh...

Since you went away,
You can color me, colour me, colour me, colour me in grey
So I'm working on the words I want to say
I never knew, never knew, never knew your name
You're just my soldier, babe

You lost track of the days
They come and they go, and they come and they go
There's no way that I could keep up with it
And I pray
And I wonder, wonder, wonder if you hear me
Ten thousand miles away

Hey soldier
I'm missing your life
Wish I could hold ya
And make it alright
Sending you my love and a little light
I never told ya
That you're my soldier
But goodnight

You know it's gonna take, gonna take, gonna take more time
Till we're staring up at the same sky
And so I'm going to wait, going to wait, going to wait in line
Till my soldier's mine

Hey soldier
I'm missing your life
Wish I could hold ya
And make it alright
Sending you my love and a little light
I never told ya
That you're my soldier
Goodnight

I don't care how long it takes
I'm not going anywhere, love (no)
You see there
This distance only makes me
Say it over and over till it gets to you
My soldier (ooh)

Hey soldier
I'm missing your life
Wish I could hold ya
And make it alright
Sending you my love and a little light
I never told ya

You're my soldier
Goodnight
Sending you my love and a little light
I never told ya
That you're my soldier

Goodnight (Goodnight)
Goodnight (Goodnight)
Goodnight, Goodnight
Goodnight, Goodnight
Mmm...

    Im a soldier. And she is thousand miles away. And I think her love makes me stronger. She is soldier for me! Love you Chris!

  3. Cyan

    where's this song come from? in her albums?

    paris roubaix

    have you found out yet?

  4. Road Lez Traveled

    "Since you went away, color me color me color me grey." The day in the life of a military spouse, waiting for our beloved to return home, and hold them in our arms again. In and out of months, deployments, overseas assignments, long distance relationships never had me thinking for one solitary moment that she wasn't worth waiting for.

  5. splash johnson

    Beautiful song to celebrate the business of killing

  6. AFN7

    Should've been the soundtrack for American Sniper.

  7. andré valeroso

    I think this song is not only for soldiers. It's for people who have become a soldier in our lives. I'm missing my mom. She's my soldier.

  8. Nuanchan Kingsakun

  12. ehamadification

    why is this song not on album?

  13. Bee Dubb

    for me this is bittersweet...I don't care if you support the war or not, support the troops! MOST of the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen do not support it but we do it for the love of our country and making sure the next generation has the freedom we all had!
