Soldier

 

Section One
Rejection feels like being dragged underwater
I fought so hard for you
In my heart I knew the truth

And my heart was never made
For enduring so much pain
Just because I'm fragile
Doesn't mean that I will break

Bridge
Call me a deserter
But all you do is hurt
You're ungrateful and your morals lie
Trodden in the dirt

Chorus
It's not hard to abandon all that I hoped for
'Cause you've got one less soldier
And I've got one less war
All you were was a burden on my shoulder
Now you've got one less soldier
And I've got one less war

Section Two
I cared about your problems
When I had my own
I supported from the sidelines
And got nothing in return
Thing is I would have settled
For being your reserve
But as far as you're concerned
That's more than I am worth

Just know I never want you now
Not if you put me first

Bridge
Call me a deserter
But all you do is hurt
You're ungrateful and your morals lie
Trodden in the dirt

Chorus
It's not hard to abandon all that I hoped for
'Cause you've got one less soldier
And I've got one less war
All you were was a burden on my shoulder
Now you've got one less soldier
And I've got one less war

Section Three
I've followed you so far
But you don't want me on your team
People laughed at me
Some warned me
Some pitied me
Some pointed
It's never too late, I'm going back the way I came
And I'll hold my head up high if I see them again

Chorus
It's not hard to abandon all that I hoped for
'Cause you've got one less soldier
And I've got one less war
All you were was a burden on my shoulder
Now you've got one less soldier
And I've got one less war

Ending
Now you've got one less soldier
And I've got one less war
