-My Friend The Enemy-

Written by: Christopher Stopford



    WOULD YOU HAVE SHOT ME

    MY FRIEND, IF NOT FOR THAT WAR

    WOULD WE ENEMIES THEN HAVE BEEN

    I BLAME YOU NOT AT ALL MY FRIEND

    FOR IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME

    THAT SHOT YOU INSTEAD


    WAR IS CRUEL, MY FRIEND

    THE BLAME IS NOT ON YOU

    IT'S OUR COUNTRIES CAUSES

    THAT CONSCRIPTS YOU AND ME

    TO FIGHT SOMETIMES NO MATTER HOW UNJUST

    IN WARS THAT MAKE YOU AND ME, ENEMIES


    WHEN IN ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME

    WE COULD HAVE BEEN FRIENDS, MY FOE

    IT'S MY COUNTRY THAT SHOT ME DOWN

    NOT YOU, MY FRIEND, THE ENEMY

    THAT MY COUNTRY MADE OF YOU AND ME

    REMEMBER, YOU ARE BLAMELESS, MY FRIEND, THE ENEMY.
