STILL EIGHTEEN

Why won't someone explain to me
Why doesn't someone care
why is it Ia m all alone?
In the shadows of my mind

I am still a young man
Fighting for your freedom
On the shores of Dunkirk
Look at my photos with medals galore

Now nobody even bothers to knock on my door
Tell me why mate, tell me why
Come on tell me but don't lie
I'm not old I never will be

I'm still on the beach try and kill me
On the beach with the blood and dead
Yes, I am lonely the nightmares don't cease
all my mates bodies around me covered in red

Let me tell you I'm still eighteen
A mind full of horror and bullets galore
I laid under my mates for hours
Yes, i'm still on that shore

It was the loneliest place on earth
And here I am on a lonely shore again
But don't call me old my friend
Cause I'll disagree, I'm eighteen
And will always be.
