I am a soldier
Trained and conditioned
Served my time
But I didn't choose this mission
Fighting a war
I think I'm the only
Solider for the lonely

I have been wounded
Under fire
But it's not deterred
Or weakened my desire
To defend them
'Cause I'm the only
Solider for the lonely

For every heart that's been broken
For every kind word left unspoken
Every promise not remembered
I'll not forget
I'll not surrender
'Cause I'm the only
Soldier for the lonely

Here in the trenches
No sanctuary
Nights are long
And solitary
Nobody holds me
'Cause I'm the only
Soldier for the lonely

Repeat chorus

I'll plant a rose
I'll she'd a tear
I'll die alone
No one to hear
My battle cry
'Cause I'm the only
Soldier for the lonely
I'm the only
Soldier for the lonely
