Lyrics
I'm just a person
I don't claim no country
I just don't need a flag
To say who I am
Well, I come from my momma
Like you and your brother
This world is ours
It's all in your hands

I'm just a soldier
Fighting the sorrow
Holding my head up high
Won't beg steal or borrow
Oh and if not today
If not today - if not today
Then maybe tomorrow

I'm only human

So I'll make my excuses
But there's one thing I know
One thing I can see
It might be too late
To change where we're goin'
But in your own mind
You can always be free

I'm just a soldier
Fighting that sorrow
Holding my head up high
Won't beg steal or borrow
Oh and if not today
If not today - if not today
Then maybe tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow
