(Verse 1)
Another new soldier
Battling forces in my heart
Eyes locked together
In each other’s arms through the night

(Chorus 1)
Hearts collide, feelings deprived
Reflecting on each other’s past
Will it be different this time?
Will it be different this time?

(Verse 2)
Another new soldier
Guns drawn, defenses on alert
Fists in the air clenched in fear
Anticipate a time when all is revealed

(Chorus 2)
Trust takes years to build
The battle lines are drawn
What can I do to make you believe
That I have always been here for you
Promises are meant to be kept
Not just something you say
Changing season, trying to find a reason
Not to pack up your weapons and, run away


(Verse 3)
Another new soldier
With a shield, safely guarding their heart
Why can’t I keep you near?
Why are you the one that I fear?

(Chorus 3)
Close the gates the army retreats
Just like before, there is a forfeit
Will I sell myself out this time?
Will I sell myself short?

Fighting to subdue these feelings
But always on the look out
Keeping my eyes peeled
For another new soldier
For another new soldier
