lyrics

One day I'll have a - son and he will be the unknown soldier,
that's what the elder said,
he'll be forgotten,
by the - time he'll be in his thirties.

He will be strong and he will belong
to all of the people who suffered a loss.

Please don't take my son,
I'm not ready yet,
I don't want to forget.

I never raised him to live in martyrdom.

One day I'll have a - son and he will be my hero."


One day I had a - son and he - was my hero,
and ev'rybody knew his name,
he was a loved one,
by the - e time he was in his twenties.

He was so frail, but he didn't care
of the admiration locked in people's stare.

Give me back my son,
don't send him yonder,
he is not a martyr.

I will - raise him to be a quiet child.

One day I'll have a -a son and he is now forgotten.
