When you are a soldier
I will be your shield
I will go with you
Into the battlefield
And when the arrows start to fly
Take my hand and hold on tight
I will be your shield
'Cause I know how it feels
When you are a soldier

When you're tired from running
I will cheer you on
Look beside you
And you'll see you're not alone
And when your strength is all but gone
I'll carry you until you're strong
And I will be your shield
'Cause I know how it feels
When you're a soldier
I will be the one
You can cry your songs to
My eyes will share your tears
I'll be your friend if you win
Or if you're defeated
Whenever you need me
I will be here

When you're lost in darkness
I will hold the light
I will help you find
Your way through the night
I'll remind you of the truth
And keep the flame alive in you
And I will be your shield
'Cause I know how it feels
When you are a soldier
And I will be your shield
Cause I know How it feels
When You are a soldier
