Lyrics
For you...I shall give
We laugh..but no-one's laughing
We kiss..and no-one cares
So we shout..but no-one's listening
So we live..like no-one dares

For you
Well I'll be your soldier
For you
I'll bury friends
For you

Well I'll be your saviour
For you
I'll play and pretend

So we laugh.. but no-one's laughing
And we kiss.. but no-one cares
So we shout.. but no-one's listening
So we live.. like no-one dares

For you
Well I'll be your soldier
For you
I'll bury friends

For you
Well I'll be your saviour
For you
I'll play and pretend

For you
Well I'll be your soldier
For you
I'll bury friends

For you
Well I'll be your saviour
For you
I'll play and pretend

So we cry..but now you're laughing
So we hate..but now who cares
So we shout..but now you're listening
So we'll die..and you won't care

For you
Well I'll be your soldier
For you
I'll bury friends

For you
Well I'll be your saviour
For you

I'll play and pretend
I'll play and pretend
I'll play and pretend
I'll play and pretend
I'll play and pretend
