Soldier, soldier
in the night,
you are strong
and full of light.

Soldier, soldier
you are mine;
you are brilliant
like fine wine.

Soldier, soldier,
you are silent;
you are proud,
and you are violent.

Soldier, soldier
you will crumble;
you will slip,
and you will stumble.

Soldier, soldier
I will catch you,
and every step,
I will match you.

Soldier, soldier
I am yours;
I will follow you
to distant shores.
