All day long he was fighting for you
Young men come and young men go

Why do we keep holding on
Pretending to be oh so strong
Is there something I don't know
Or maybe
That's the way it is, there's nothing I can do,

They've been waiting for you night and day
It may already be too late
And I don't know why.
You see the dying, you feel the pain
If we agree that we can disagree

But you cannot fight no more
When he asks you what you did it for
'Cos all day long he was fighting for you
Young men come and young men go
