Four Steps to the Battlefield

I have four steps to the battlefield
But it seems so far away,
My life before my eyes.
As I put my foot down,
I’m only three steps away.


I have three steps to the battlefield,
Oh how I will miss my little girl,
My wife, my friends and my family.
As my foot hits the ground,
I am only two steps away.

I have two steps to the battlefield,
How I hope I do survive.
I can hear the guns a blowing,
Hear the cannons roar,
As my foot hits the cold hard ground,
I am one step away.

I have one step to the battlefield
And that’s not far at all.
I will take a step and serve my country
In this violent war. My foot goes down,
A bomb goes boom,
The whole world goes black.


I lay here in the battlefield,
Bleeding from my wound.
I will die here in no mans land
As a soldier strong and true.
