And the light of a fading star
Is what you were, is what you are
Like the glow that christens the moon
You shone too soon, you shone too soon

Oh when will this war be over?
And the madness leaves the air
This brick that's found between us
And the pulling of the hair

But if there's a reason
I don't need to know right now

And the light of a fading star
Is what you were, is what you are
Like the glow that christens the moon
You shone too soon, you shone too soon

Volunteers are soon forgotten
And many more of us shall die
The sick still feed the hungry
And the last battle song has cried

But if there's a reason
I don't need to know right now

And the light of a fading star
Is what you were, is what you are
Like the glow that christens the moon
You shone too soon, you shone too soon

Oh and I always thought
That you, you wanted me
Oh and I always thought some how
That you, you wanted me

Ahhh, but if there's a reason
I don't need to know right now
'Cause beyond the pale eyes' evening
And the shadow of the cloud

And the light of a fading star
Is what you were, is what you are
Like the glow that christens the moon
You shone too soon, you shone too soon

And the light of a fading star
Is what you were, is what you are
Like the glow that christens the moon
You shone too soon, you shone too soon

And the light of a fading star
Is what you were, is what you are

    General CommentSmall correction.

    Beyond the pale lies evening,*
    And the shadow of the plough*

    Good song. Nice sounds.

    General Commentthis song kicks major ass. it makes me think of a battle, but at the same time, someone who died(you shone too soon) and at the same time again, love and loss. someone talking to his lost love type thing. i don't know completely and this song kicks ass.

    General CommentIts about a war, a cause that burned out and lost its meaning.

    "Oh and I always thought
    That you, you wanted me
    Oh and I always thought some how
    That you, you wanted me"
    refers to how the movement wantes them.

    General CommentThis song is about dying too soon and without reason, for a cause that is relatively unknown in war.
