Evergreen 2 Unchained Melody

Evergreen # 2 Unchained Melody
the night has fallen
The sounds of guns
engage and rage in my sight
I confess, my love
the fear that all men know
their life could end
I hear your prayer
I…I need your prayer
Godspeed your prayer to me.

Duty calls a man
many times, many days
Duty calls a man
just like me
But when the guns are done
endless fog, blackened sun
this lonely man again
you will see

I wait for fire
and thunder, thunder through the night
I must stay alive
While I endure the hunger
that comes from weary eyes
and long goodbyes
I hear your prayer
I…I need your prayer
Godspeed your prayer to me
