lyrics

Going to the front line,
rifle in my hand
gonna stoke a fire
burn back this land.

Could've been a doctor
could have been a thumb,
but now I'm just a number
laying in the Somme

Poppy and a brisket
sheets turned down,
he's never coming back though
never coming back.

Thought I saw your face there,
my legs broke down.
Everywhere's a young man,
running out this town

Help, he's our sun.
we're all someone’s sun.

Standing on the broad moor
thinking what was won,
writing out a blank cheque
with the barrel of a gun.

Hoping it's a mistake;
letter in the mail.
Father stopped a'checking,
and fell into the pale.

Help, he's our sun
we're all someone's sun.

Thinking about your grandkids,
looking like you.
Father had a breakdown,
Mother had a breakdown;

she said she shouldn't let you
settle out that score.
Your daughter didn't think that
now she's flying out to war

Help, she's our sun
We're all someone’s sun.
