Warsong - Lyrics by White Lion


Lyrics
I got the call one summer night
He said you
¹re on tomorrow
¹s flight
My mother cried my sister too
My father said I¹m proud of you
I can
¹t believe it
¹s true
We
¹re going after ³who
²
And still I wish that I just knew
What are we fighting for
When the price we pay is endless war
What are we fighting for
When all we need is peace
Though I¹m blind to what I see
They tell me there
¹s an enemy
I know I gotta get outta here
Insanity is drawing near
Can
¹t take it anymore
I¹ve knocked on heaven
¹s door
No I¹m not dying for this war
What are we fighting for
When the price we pay is endless war
What are we fighting for
When all we need is peace
What are we fighting for
Can
¹t we learn from what we
¹ve done before
What are we fighting for
When no one ever wins, in war
A young man returns from war
Where he didn
¹t know
What he was fighting for
The streets remained the same
But people
¹d changed
The medals on his chest
Didn
¹t mean a thing
A tear dropped from the corner of his eye
Did he come come
My grandpa died in Normandy
My brother is still in Vietnam
I know there
¹s nothing good in war
I know Rcause I¹ve been there before
So what am I gonna do
I know this war ain
¹t through
And still I wish that I just knew
What are we fighting for
When the price we pay is endless war
What are we fighting for
When all we need is peace
What are we fighting for
Can
¹t we learn form what we
¹ve done before
What are we fighting for
When no one ever wins, in war
