Remembrance Day

For our king and our country
And the promise of glory
We came from Kingston and Brighton
To fight on the front line

Just lads from the farms and boys from the cities
Not meant to be soldiers, we lay in the trenches
We'd face the fighting with a smile
Or so we said
If only we had known what danger lay ahead

The sky turned to grey as we went into battle
On the fields of Europe, young men were fallin'
I'll be back for you someday, it won't be long
If I can just hold on 'till this bloody war is over

The guns will be silent on remembrance day
There'll be no more fighting on remembrance day

By October of 18, Cambria had fallen
Soon the war would be over and we'd be returnin'
Don't forget me while I'm gone far away
Well it won't be long
'Till I'm back there in your arms again

The guns will be silent on remembrance day
There'll be no more fighting on remembrance day

One day soon, I don't know when
You know we'll all be free
And the bells of peace will ring again
The time will come for you and me
We'll be goin' home when this bloody war is ended

The guns will be silent on remembrance day
We'll all say a prayer on remembrance day

On remembrance day, say a little prayer, yeah
On remembrance day

Well the guns will be silent
There'll be no more fighting, oh
We'll lay down our weapons
On remembrance day, woah, yeah
On remembrance day
