Soldier of Fun

(C) Shelsey Jarvis, Jerry Fielden 2005 SOCAN

Out of silence, black as night
I remove myself from the fight
Outward joy in sadness I must flee
Leave me, lonely I shall be


Orchids bright lights surrounding you
Spotlights flaming flowers through
I'm a grieving grinning famous star
I'm much too high to raise the bar
not too far

Back to the front, soldier of fun
I've walked these forests, thrown my gun
These boots may have holes, but these boots are my own
From my point of view, they are just fine

They built a cage without a key
What a pretty zoo they made for me
I'm the headliner, a one-man show
I'd run away, but where would I go?
