Falling Star 

Falling Star up in the sky 
Oh, I wish you were 
A silver flare that dips and dies 
Expose and lays us bare 
We were young and patriotic 
A righteous war no way to stop it 
We were told your country needs you 
We were young, never to grow old 

Falling Star up in the Sky 
Oh, I wish you were 
Pinned on wires like butterflies 
Relics of disregarded prayers 
Sound of gun fires 
Young lads screaming 
Fatally wounded  
No chance of healing 
Unprepared for gas and blood 
All for a few hundred yards of useless mud 
Falling star if I could make a wish 
Would you hear?
