Running as fast as I can
Can't even see where I am now
Over the soldiers and sand
This wasn't part of the plan

I never see the dawn
Although I know it comes

If I ever see blue skies in my town
You know I'll kiss the
Ground we walk on
If I ever watch fireflies all around
Shining like the stars above them
The bullets fly over my head
Just like the words that you said, son,
So put down your guns
And that's the way
The war was won

Over the edge and beyond
Over the border there's no bombs
Falling on soldiers and sand
Holding their hearts in their hands

If I ever see blue skies in my town
You know I'll kiss the ground we walk on
If I ever watch fireflies all around
Shining like the stars above them
The bullets fly over my head
Just like the words that you said, son,
As we put down our guns
And that's the way
The war was won

If I ever see blue skies in my town
You know I'll kiss the
Ground we walk on
If I ever see fireflies all around
Shining like the stars above them
The bullets fly over my head
As I lie awake in my bed
I just can't forget what you said, son,
As we put down our guns
And that's the way
The war was won
Was won
The war was won
