Lyrics of Battles

I remember dreaming of all the time that I had
for I was young,. I was just a lad.
But where did it go
it went away too fast
Now I spend the time left
dreaming of the past

The battles I fought
The ones that I won
oh the despair
But. oh the fun.

My back to the wall
I ask thee oh Lord
Should I carry on
or lay down my sword

Or be a victim
of circumstance.
or a product
of a bad romance.

The battles I fought
The ones that I won
oh the despair
But. oh the fun.

I've got it in my head
not to be misled.
to make the most of the time ahead
until my deathbed.

This brother is free
to be what I want to be
to cherish the friends I have
and dream of those to be.

The battles I fought
The ones that I won
oh the despair
But. oh the fun.

Instruments only

One thing is certain
we all know is true
time can be kind
time can be cruel.

along with the good times
there are bad times too.
You know that's how it works
cause it's so true.

Grant me oh Lord
the courage to carry on
and NEVER.....never ever......lay down my sword
