Wonderful Game

An early April morning

Soldiers came into sight

There were black clouds mourning

And mum’s hair turned to white

 

Driven away by lorries

To barren nowhere land

Heads full of worries

And no one to lend us a hand

There were ghost-like churches and the holy faith was pushed aside

And in the background dark shadows hung crucified

 

Chorus

Wonderful game

Hold me again

Whisper in my ear to deaden my pain

Wonderful game

Hold me again

Beside you I’ve lain

And told you my name

Hiding the shame

 

Your frail beauty haunts me

As I see you stand by the side

Not comprehending the fading gloomy shades of the light

 

On the caps you could see our badges

Rifles bought us time

But our lives just simply weren't worth a dime

 

I saw a worthy man who had his sparkling aspirations still in mind

Burying what he always believed, his vain hopes in the ground

 

Chorus

Wonderful game

Hold me again

Whisper in my ear to deaden my pain

Wonderful game

Hold me again

Beside you I’ve lain

And told you my name

Hiding the shame

Hiding the shame

Hiding the shame
