A Sniper's Promise is an Irish Rebel Song, sung by Wolfe Tones

If you love IRELAND, GO THERE :

This song is about Redemption, not 'bout war nor hate !!
Ulead for the movie editing
Excerpts from Enemy At The Gates, by JJ Annaud, with Ed Harris and Jude Law


The night was icy cold I stood along
I was waiting for an army foot patrol
And when at last they came into my sight
I squeezed the trigger of my armalite

Oh mama, oh mama comfort me
For I know these awful things have got to be
But when the war for freedom has been won
I promise you I'll put away my gun.

A shot rang out, I heard a soldier cry
"Oh please don't leave me here alone to die"
I realized his patrol had run away
And left their wounded comrade for me to slay.


"There's nothing in this world I would not do
If there's mercy in your heart you'll let me live"
And in his eyes I saw a look of pain
As the mussel of my gun moved towards his brain.


The dawn was breaking as I reached my base
I will not forget the look on that boy's face
Fear, agony, and torment where all there
Oh but to your memory, mother, his life I spared.
