Ben Howard – Soldiers lyrics

Oh you watch me steady, you
Watch me with such a quiet sincerity
And you hold me heavy, you
Hold me like I was born to be held
And the light comes in here, yeah
Morning my dear, and the restlessness of arms
And we lie here longing now
Words were ours that we'll never be harmed
'Cause you are dear to me
Yeah you are dear

But if this goes wrong again, oh heaven forbid
If this was how it was meant to fall, no
If this goes wrong again
Will you pretend that you know, steady as the morning and just go
And just go
And just go

I made you breakfast, oh
Soldiers to guard and keep you company
When I'm goin' away again
All faces and falsities of new friends
Yeah there's fires here to burn, and
Timbers left to learn in this young heart
And honey please don't think I don't miss you, no
Don't think I don't think of you when we're apart
Because I do dear, I do
Yeah I do dear

But if this goes wrong again, oh heaven forbid
If this was how it was meant to fall, no
If this goes wrong again
Will you pretend that you know, steady as the morning and just go
And just go
And just go
