Yes
Yes, I know
Yes, I know that when you hear this
You'll feel strange, I know
Still out of sight
But I've got this mouth
That's full of dynamite, tonight
Tonight

Lover, you're a soldier
You're a long, long way from home
A long way from your mother
And you do it on your own
I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
I don't think we need to
Cos it's just so easy

So I survive
So I just try to get through
And stay alive
You do the same
Do the same
I see you running
Through the rain

Lover, you're a soldier
You're a long, long way from home
A long way from your mother
And you do it on your own
I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
I don't think we need to
Cos it's just so easy

I got lucky
When you said sorry
And I couldn't stop now
If I knew how
And if it's true what they say
About love and hard work
Well, alright
Cos maybe people in love
Are all on the same side when they fight
And everyone's raging and railing
And screaming for war
But you haven't got anything
That I would fight you for
To fight you

Lover, you're a soldier
You're a long, long way from home
A long way from your mother
And you do it on your own
I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
But I don't think we need to
Cos it's just easy

Lover, you're a soldier
You're a long, long way from home
A long way from your mother
And you do it on your own
We can take our chances
Cos we knew it going in
There'd be lots of dancing
But we'd never, ever play to win
