Sabaton – Cliffs Of Gallipoli lyrics

Hear them whisper
Voices from the other side
Hear them calling
Former foes now friends are resting side by side

They will never leave our hearts or fade away
Live forever
They were far to young to die in such a way

How many wasted lives? how many dreams did fade away?
Broken promises they won't be coming home
Oh mothers wipe your tears your sons will rest a million years
Found their peace at last as foe turn to friend and forgive
And they knew they would die

Left their letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Dreams of freedom turned to dust

Hell is waiting where the ocean meets the sand
Cliffs of burden
Where the soldiers rushed into a certain death

At the shoreline blood of heroes stains the land
Light a candle
One for each of them who fought and died in vain

There is no enemy there is no victory
Only boys who lost their lives in the sand
Young men were sacrificed their names are carved in stone and kept alive
And forever we will honour the memory of them

And they knew they would die

    We should honour the men who lost their live to save the freedom of other people so they wont be for gottain cause when you forget the men and weman who died while serving there nation then and only then did they die in vain. Sabaton is the vocie of all the men and weman who died in battle they keep alive through music, they do what most musictions including myself are to scared to do, but they make it work so next time you listen to sabaton think of all they fallen soldiers.
