Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

IWasThere

This song was created for Game of Bands round 44 : "Anthems / Fight Song"

Lyrics:

Verse 1 
 
The battleships fly overhead 
Where shells and shrapnel rain 
Like steel fireflies they light the sky 
In bursts of smoke and flame 
 
Machine guns pound like battle drums 
Amidst the fog and gloom 
Where brave men fell, the bombs like bells 
Ring out a soldier’s tune 
 
Let them know that brave souls dared 
And I was there 
 
Chorus 
 
I was there when our help didn’t come 
Trapped in the valley, outnumbered, outgunned 
I was there under enemy skies 
Captain said I’m too pretty to die 
 
 
Verse 2 
 
A rifle in my trembling hand 
The dead on every side 
Hopeless and numb, the message comes 
We’ve all been left behind 
 
Alliance ships come down in swarms 
The gunfire falls like rain 
But I die free just as I see 
The bullet with my name 
 
Let them know that brave souls dared 
And I was there 
 
Chorus 
 
 was there when our help didn’t come
Trapped in the valley, outnumbered, outgunned
I was there under enemy skies
Captain said I’m too pretty to die

I’m still there, my grave and my pride 
Serenity valley, brave men at my side
Brown coat on my back, bright eyes to the sky
Captain said I’m too pretty to die

[Exit]
