Listen old soldier wherever you are
The hills or the valleys
Come near or come far
They say youth's a treasure
We waste when we're young
So come down from the place
Where your medals are hung
You're forever returning and learning to fight
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight

Listen old soldier 'cause time doesn't wait
The moon's on your shoulder
The hour is late
There's something there inside you
Still calls out to you
And you won't fade away
Whatever you do

You're forever beginning
Barely winning the fight
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight

You're not getting any younger
That much is true now
But you've still got that hunger
Burning in you now
So what do you do now

What do you do now

Listen old soldier
To the sound in your ears
Of too many battles
For too many years
There's only one thing
You've learned in defeat
Losing is bitter
And victory is sweet

You're always unravelling
Traveling light
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight


Feel just like an old soldier tonight
