Story behind the song
The song is about Children of war who lost their parent or even in some case partents. It is in the memory of those fallen hero's that this song is dedicated to.
When I was eighteen, years old and so very young, I went off to war, did not know what begun. That I'd live my life in so much pain, didn’t know then what was truly insane.
Chorus: We did what we were told to do and didn't question why. We fought so hard till so many, many died, now are children are left behind.
Lead: Flu gal horn, Strings and Piano
Chorus: We did what we were told to do and didn't question why. We, fought so hard till so many, many died and now are children are left behind.
Thirty years later they did it again. In Iraq the war is coming to know end. So, come on America when will we see the light so none of our children have to suffer our fight.
They did what they were told to do and not questioning why, they fought so hard till so many, many died. And now are children are left behind. And yet are children are left behind. So many children are left behind.
