BELLE and SEBASTIAN lyrics : "I Fought In A War"

I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasn't very long
Before I would stand with another boy in front of me

And a corpse that just fell into me, with the bullets flying round
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady boy to wear

Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting for
This letter to arrive because I'll be here quite a while


I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasn't very long
Before I found out that the sickness there ahead of me

Went beyond the bedsit infamy of the decade gone before

And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on

And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady man to wear
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting for
This letter to arrive because I'll be here quite a while


I fought in a war, and I didn't know where it would end
It stretched before me infinitely, I couldn't really think

Of the day beyond now, keep your head down pal
There's trouble plenty in this hour, this day
I can see hope I can see light


And I reminded myself of the looks you gave when we were getting on
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady man to wear

Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting for
This letter to arrive because I'll be here quite a while
