War Is Over Lyrics

Old soldiers talk about the battles fought
To build a better world for me and you
They sacrificed their lives to make a dream come true
Now they're forgotten men remembered by so few

But the war is over
And the fighting ended many years ago
The war is over
The battle's won but what is there to show?

Side by side they marched together
Fighting so their children could be free
To build a better world, a new society
All classes unified to live in harmony

Now the war is over
So let's forget and leave the past alone
The war is over
It's time for all the soldiers to go home

Rich men, poor men make history
Fighting for the land of hope and glory
A nation's voice will sing as one
A battle cry until we've won

The war is over
And the patriotic comrades are no more
The war is over
Now they're going home to live just like before

Arm in arm we sang our patriotic songs
Of love and sentiment
Tears of joy to hide the sorrow
New tomorrows till we meet again

With a new world to build we'll say, "Auf weidersein"
What did they do for us? What did it prove to us?
As we stand beside the silent grave
The unknown soldier can't be saved

The war is over, the war is over
It's time for all the soldiers to go home
The war is over
