Lyrics

Unless peace can prevail

The sun beat down
On the soldiers brow
How he wished he were safe back home
He'd die for his country
But he was not sure this was it
And he's not sure how to stop
To let it show

He's seen the face
Of the enemy up close
Surprisingly it looks alot
Like his own
He thinks about death
And his new baby back home
If one had never been to war
How would they ever know

It's for nothing unless peace can prevail
It's for nothing unless peace can prevail

Like Achilles unleased
He ran toward the fire
Leaving orphans and widows
In his wake
Until he saw the pain
In the enemy's eye

And knew that his enemy
was fighting for the same

It's for nothing unless peace can prevail
It's for nothing unless peace can prevail

The feeling of dread
Everytime the phone rang
Her soldier husband
So very far away
As the nightlynews
Unraveled the truth
She began to doubt the reasons
That put him in harms way

It's for nothing unless peace can prevail
It's for nothing unless peace can prevail

It's for nothing unless peace can prevail
It's for nothing unless peace can prevail
