Song Description

An old soldier sees a young girl dancing and it takes him back to Paris in the 40's.


Ghosts of the War

There?s a dance I learned in France, or was it Italy?
Was that a glance, is there a chance, you might dance with me
With you in my arms I might finally recall
The steps that I learned once oh I once knew them all
There?s something in you brings out something in me
After my long winter and fall

Well my old heart got torn apart at Normandy
And my best friend would see his end before he saw the beach
But I fought on for him til we took back Par-ee
Where I met a young girl who loved the hurt out of me
And when I look at you now it?s like she?s young and alive
In the glow of my memories

There?s a war it still rages
Despite all the stages
That I?ve somehow lived beyond
I need to return to the love that I learned
Could make me feel like I?ve come home
And let me know I?m no longer alone

In your darkest eyes a glimpse of sky peeks out at me
After all the years the unshed tears finally reach the sea
My body feels young when you glide cross the floor
And a woman like you is surely worth dying for
Maybe in my next life you?ll be waiting for me
And there?ll be no more ghosts of the war
