A Soldier on the Front Line

Story Behind The Song

Hello, as with almost all the songs that I write, I put any lyrics in that sound like they nicely suit the melody and tone when the idea for the melody comes, then lyric the rest of the song when I have a clear theme from the initial lyrics. Stacy Hogan helped me finish off the song.

Song Length 4:36 Genre Pop - General
Tempo Medium (111 - 130) Lead Vocal Female Vocal
Language English Era 2000 and later

Lyrics

Nothing's gonna stop me here tonight
I'm rising up straight to the fight
I can't let go, I've come so far
To raise our flag tonight

Standing on the front line here again
The battle's fierce I'm hearing cries
All through the night, it's hard to see
I'm feeling paralysed

And every time I hold my gun I feel this fear inside
Will this be the only time I'm standing here alive

I've gotta be on fire when I'm dancing through the night
I've gotta be on fire when I'm hearing guns tonight
I gotta be on fire when I'm moving through the night
I gotta be on fire cos we are fighting for your life tonight

I'm thinking bout a better place tonight
Away from here with peace and quiet
A paradise I cannot see
Is this reality

Choppers flying everywhere tonight
Cruising down into the fight
Missiles flying through the air
Does anybody care

And every time I hold my gun I feel this fear inside
Will this be the only time I'm standing here alive

I've gotta be on fire when I'm dancing through the night
I've gotta be on fire when I'm hearing guns tonight
I gotta be on fire when I'm moving through the night
I gotta be on fire cos we are fighting for your life tonight

And when I'm searching through this battleground
For injured souls tonight
I'm finding all these people here who sacrificed their lives
And when another soldier dies I raise my head and cry
Thank God I'm still alive

I've gotta be on fire when I'm dancing through the night
I've gotta be on fire when I'm hearing guns tonight
I've gotta be on fire when I'm moving through the night
I gotta be on fire cos we're fighting for your life
I've gotta be on fire when I'm dancing through the night
I've gotta be on fire when I'm hearing guns tonight
I've gotta be on fire when I'm moving through the night
I gotta be on fire cos we're fighting for your life tonight
