Sound the bugle now - play it just for me
As the seasons change - remember how I used to be
Now I can't go on - I can't even start
I've got nothing left - just an empty heart

I'm a soldier - wounded so I must give up the fight
There's nothing more for me - lead me away...
Or leave me lying here

Sound the bugle now - tell them I don't care
There 's not a road I know - that leads t anywhere
Without a light I fear that I will - stumble in the dark
Lay right down - decide not t go on

Then from on high - somewhere in the distance
There's a voice that calls - remember who you are
If you lose yourself - your courage soon will follow
So be strong tonight - remember who you are
Ya you're a soldier now - fighting in a battle
To be free once more...
Ya that's worth fighting for

    General Commentone of the saddest songs I've ever heard.. althought it gets alittle more optimistic towards the end... the music alone is just depressing..

    General Commentall Bryan Adams songs that were featured in "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron" seem to fit in so well with the current scenes

    General CommentLove love love this song. It's very saddening but in the end it's very uplifting and it kinda gives you a "high". Feeling like you can believe in yourself and overcome your obstacles.
