Blood, Sweat & Tears – I Was A Witness To A War lyrics
(Blood, Sweat & Tears)
I saw a little boy today
I saw a little boy today who didn't want this fight
The other children laughed at him
It was a frightening thought
And I, I began to cry
Someone asked why
Someone asked what for
'Cause something inside of me, something inside of me
Something inside of me said I was a witness to a war
I was a witness to what happened
And I hated what I saw
I was a witness to a war, to a war

I saw a woman dressed in black
Her husband isn't coming back, she didn't want him to go
They said he had to do his chores before
Their future could grow
And I, I began to cry
Someone asked why
Someone asked what for
'Cause something inside of me, something inside of me
Something inside of me said I was a witness to a war
I was a witness to the heartbreak
That some soldier's woman bore
I was a witness to a war, to a war

I saw an ugly field today
I saw an ugly field today where only crosses could grow
A monument to modern man, and now
There's no place to go
And I, I began to cry
But no-one asked why
No-one asked what for
But something inside of me, something inside of me
Something inside of me said I was a victim of a war
I was a victim of the madness
That we should have stopped before
I was a witness to a war, to a war
