Remembrance Day

Bryan Adams

For our king and our country

and the promise of glory

We came from Kingston and Brighton

to fight on the front line

Just lads from the farms and boys from the cities

Not meant to be soldiers we lay in the trenches

We'd face the fighting with a smile -

or so we said

If only we had known what danger lay ahead

The sky turned to grey as we went into battle

On the fields of Europe young men were fallin'

I'll be back for you someday - it won't be long

If I can just hold on 'til this bloody war is over

The guns will be silent on Remembrance Day

There'll be no more fighting on Remembrance Day

By October of 18 Cambrai had fallen

Soon the war would be over and we'd be returnin'

Don't forget me while I'm gone far away

Well it won't be long

'till I'm back there in your arms again

One day soon - I don't know when

You know we'll all be free

and the bells of peace will ring again

The time will come for you and me

We'll be goin' home when this bloody war is ended

The guns will be silent on Remembrance Day

We'll all say a prayer on Remembrance Day

On Remembrance Day - say a little prayer

On Remembrance Day

Well the guns will be silent

There'll be no more fighting

Oh we'll lay down our weapons

On Remembrance Day
