The Gunner's Dream Testo

Testo The Gunner's Dream

Floating downThrough the cloudsMemories come rushing up to meet me nowBut in the space between the heavensAnd in the corner of some foreign fieldI had a dreamI had a dreamGoodbye MaxGoodbye MaAfter the serviceWhen you're walking slowly to the carAnd the silver in her hair shines in the cold november airYou hear the tolling bellAnd touch the silk in your lapelAnd as the tear drops rise to meet the comfort of the bandYou take her frail handAnd hold on to the dreamA place to stay[Bloke:] "Oi! A real one..."Enough to eatSomewhere old heroes shuffle safely down the streetWhere you can speak out loudAbout your doubts and fearsAnd what's moreNo-one ever disappearsYou never hear their standard issueKicking in your doorYou can relax on both sides of the tracksAnd maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote controlAnd everyone has recourse to the lawAnd no-one kills the children anymoreNo-one kills the children anymoreNight after nightGoing round and round my brainHis dream is driving me insaneIn the corner of some foreign fieldThe gunner sleeps tonightWhat's done is doneWe cannot just write off his final sceneTake heed of the dreamTake heed
