lyrics

A young man with a heart of gold
Signs the dotted line at 18 years old
Sent to a land that's not his own
To fight a war so far from home
He makes friends that will last a lifetime
But as he stares into the night time
He wonders if he's got the will to survive
Will he make it out of here alive?

He has to battle and he's forced to kill
He struggles every day with the blood he's spilled
His family sends him letters from home
Surrounded by his brothers yet he's still alone
The enemy's hiding in plain sight
His orders tell him that he's not allowed to fight
Don't shoot until fired upon
He keeps fighting, and he carries on

It's his sacrifice
He would gladly give his life
For this nation, for this land
He's spilled blood in the sand

Sleep doesn't come because he's never calm
Then his best friend is killed by a roadside bomb
His once gold heart has now turned to stone
He came here a boy, but he'll leave here grown
The life he once knew a distant memory
As he fights for the good of humanity
And he drowns out the sound of the battle cries
With the thoughts of his home and familiar skies

It's his sacrifice
He would gladly give his life
For this nation, for this land
He's spilled blood in the sand

As the war draws to an end
He writes one last letter to send
He tells his family he loves them all
But he won't stop until the enemy falls
The battle may be over but his war's begun
His love for his country means he's never done
He'll see the war forever in his dreams
This is what his sacrifice will mean


It's his sacrifice
He would gladly give his life
For this nation, for this land
He's spilled blood in the sand
