Booze & Glory – Never Returned lyrics

He dropped outta school when he was 16
He said: "mum and dad I'm gonna be a Royalmarine"
So he went down to the afco
And signed his name to the Queens payroll
Basic training went down in the breeze
Didn't break a sweat, he passed it with ease
A lot dropped out but not our boy
Next thing he knows, he is on foreign soil
Shoved to the front with a gun in his hand
The boy that went out came back a different man
His eyes once bright, now seem dull
I don't know what he saw, coz he never told
For six month at a time he's on the front line
Then back home again to see his family and friends
But time moves quick and he's off again
That's the last time he ll see them
Was it worth all the broken hearts?
Fighting wars that ain't even ours?
Believe me or not but he did come back
In the wooden box drapped in Union Jack...
Don't know what he saw
He never said A word
Coz that boy that went away never returned...
