One Life, One Love

One Life, One Love

Chris de Burgh

Long years would be lost and over since the morning train
And the words that he called out to her
"I'll be back again!
We will all be home for christmas boys
It's what the general said"
But little did they know the winds of war
Would change the world instead

Oh in this one life there is one love
Through the ages to be with us evermore

He played his part a hero on the battlefield
'til a shell burst right beside
And brought him to his knees
As the blood just flowed away
He turned his face up to the sky
And a little boy was there beside him saying
"daddy please don't die"

Oh in this one life there is one love
Through the ages to be with us evermore

No-one knew how he made it through
And soon was on the way
With the wounded back to England
And from the early train he stepped down
And in the distance saw his wife and a little boy
Who came up running to his arms and said
"my daddy has come home"

Oh in this one life there is one love
Through the ages to be with us evermore
In this one life:
Love of a different world
There is one love.
