Like A Soldier Lyrics

With the twilight colors falling
And the evening laying shadows
Hidden memories come stealing from my mind
As I feel my own heart beating out
The simple joy of living
I wonder how I ever was that kind

But the wild road I was rambling
Was always out there calling
You said a hundred times I should have died
Then you came down and touched me
And lifted me up with you
So I believe that it was a road I was meant to ride

I'm like a soldier getting over the war
Like a young man getting over his crazy days
Like a bandit getting over his lawless ways
I don't have to do that anymore
I'm like a soldier getting over the war

Nights and days that arn't remembered
And there's pain that's been forgotten
And other things I choose not to recall
There are faces that come to me
That I thought were long forgotten
Faces that I wish would not come back at all

But in my dreams parade of lovers
From the other times and places
There's not one that matters now, no matter who
I'm just thankful for the journey
And that I've survived the battles
And that my reward for victory is you

I'm like a soldier getting over the war
Like a young man getting over his crazy days
Like a bandit getting over his lawless ways
I don't have to do that anymore
I'm like a soldier getting over the war
