close

 
ironmaiden


you take my life but ill take yours too
you fire musket but ill run you though
so when your waiting for the next attack
you better stand theres no turnin back

the bugle sounds the charge begins
but on this battlefield no one wins
the smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
as I plunge on into certain death

the horse he sweats with fear we break to run
the mighty roar of the russain guns
and we race toward the human wall
the screams of pain as my comrades fall

we hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
and the russains fire another round
we get so near yet so far away
we won't live to fight another day

we get so close near enough to fight
when a russain gets me in his sights
he pulls the trigger and i feel the blow
a burst of rounds take my horse below

and as i lay there gazing at the sky
my bodys numb and my throat is dry
and as I lay forgotten and alone
without a tear i draw a parting groan
