YUSUF ISLAM lyrics - Angel Of War

YUSUF ISLAM
"Angel Of War"

O Angel Of War! What am I fighting for?
If death comes tomorrow inform me before, inform me before

O Young Soldier Boy! Ill tell you what I know,
If peace is your wish, to battle you must go, to battle you must go

O Angel Of War! Please make it clear to me,
Which is my side, and who is my enemy? and who is my enemy?

O Young Soldier Boy! The world is open wide,
So look to wherever, the truth is forced to hide, the truth is forced to hide

O Angel Of War! Within myself I see
Battle has started, what will become of me? what will become of me?

O Young Soldier Boy! You're Wiser than you seem,
Look into your heart, and keep your motives clean, and keep your motives clean

O Angel Of War! What weapons do I need?
Lest I may perish, that I may succeed, that I may succeed

O Young Soldier Boy! If you protect the poor,
Let truth be your armour, and justice be your sword, and justice be your sword

O Angel Of War! What makes me want to fight?
I sometimes feel hatred, is it wrong or right? is it wrong or right?

O Young Soldier Boy! The war you wage,
If it's for your ego, it will die in rage, it will die in rage

O Angel Of War! How can I tell for sure,
Pride's not its reason that I'm fighting for, that I'm fighting for

O Young Soldier Boy! That's something I can't tell,
God knows you reason and you should know as well, and you should know as well

O Angel Of War! When I look at me,
I'm fearful to confess, the enemy I see, the enemy I see

O Young Soldier Boy! Now you can go your war,
I'll see you tomorrow, a boy you'll be no more, a boy you'll be no more
