Iron Maiden Lyrics

These Colours Don't Run Lyrics
It's the same in every country
When you say you're leaving
Left behind the loved ones
Waiting silent in the hall
Where you're going lies adventure
Others only dream of
Red and gren light this is real
And so you go to war

For the passion, for the glory,
For the memories, for the money
You're a soldier, for your country,
What's the difference, all the same

Far away from the land of our birth
We fly a flag in some foreign earth
We sailed away like our fathers before
These colours don't run, from cold bloody war

There is no one that will save you,
Going down in flames
No surrender certain death to you
Look it in the eye
On the shores of tyrany you crashed a human wave
Paying for my freedom with your lonely unmarked graves

For the passion, for the glory,
For the memories, for the money
You're a soldier, for your country,
What's the difference, all the same

Far away from the land of our birth
We fly a flag in some foreign earth
We sailed away like our fathers before
These colours don't run, from cold bloody war
