Gunshots shatter in the peace of night,
Just another fire fight,
For the people of this little town.
But for the dying soldier,
Well, he's feeling ten years older,
As he's lying face down on the ground.
All the words that are in his head
Are all the words his mother said
As she would put him to bed back home.

Your daddy, well he died in the Falklands,
Fighting for another man's cause.
And your brother, he was killed in the Last War.
And your mother, well she's lying home alone.

Every day she sees your face
On the picture on the fireplace
With your brother, as he was leaving school.
Then a day came five years ago,
You said: "Mother, I need to know"
And you spoke the words your brother spoke before.
"I've seen the things my daddy's done
And I've seen the medals that he's won
And I know this is what he would have wanted... For me."

But, your daddy well he died in the Falklands,
Fighting for another man's cause.
And your brother, he was killed in the Last War.
And your mother, well she's lying home alone.

Now she wonders at it all,
Just in whose name do these brave young heroes fall?
And how many more are gonna answer that call?
They're gonna fight and die in another country's war,
They're gonna die for religion they don't believe in at all,
They're gonna die in a place they should never been at all,
Oh, never been at all.

'Cause, your daddy well he died in the Falklands,
Fighting for another man's cause.
And your brother, he was killed in the Last War.
And your mother, well she's lying home alone.

Your daddy, well he died in the Falklands,
Fighting for another man's cause.
And your brother, he was killed in the Last War.
And your mother, well she's lying home alone.
