I knew a boy quite long ago

There was a war, he had to go

He was so green, his life was new

How could he guess what he’d go through ?

I did my best, he was my friend

And wrote to him right to the end

How hard is it to turn away

When there is nothing left to say ?

Except you did your extra best

And hoped and prayed bout what came next

The wars will come and wars will go

What is the reason, who can know,

You’ve heard me say these words before

Why must youth die in old mens’ war ?
