"Soldier" as written by and Ingrid Michaelson....
I don't believe in anything but myself
I don't believe in anything but myself
But then you opened up a door, you opened up a door
Now I start to believe in something else

But how do I know if I'll make it through?
How do I know, where's the proof in you?

And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
But it can be won

I sit in the back of a bus watching the world grow old
Watching the world go by all by myself
I took a faithful leap and packed up all my things and
All my love and gave it to somebody else

But how do I know if I'll make it through?
How do I know, where's the proof in you?

And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
But it can be won, but it can be won
But it can be won, but it can be won

And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won

And so it goes, this soldier knows
(And so it goes)
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
(The war is won)

And so it goes, this soldier knows
(And so it goes)
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
(The war is won)
But it can be won, but it can be won

    General CommentThis song should have more comments. The melody in this is so wonderful. I thought Ingrid was okay before, but after hearing this song, I'm sold.

    General CommentA song about a girl that doesn't believe in love until she meets this person and she realizes that she will do anything to be with him even loose everything but it take courage to do it and that in turns makes her a soldier that believe that if you fight for it you can love forever.
