Another New Soldier (3min27) By: Shawn Petrie (6-14-2004) – (9-15-2015) Performed by: August Will Decay Loaded Knife Records (2015)
(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
