Testo della canzone Fortune Of Soldiers (The Webb Sisters), tratta dall'album Born To The Breed: A Tribute To Judy Collins

Fortune Of Soldiers - The Webb Sisters

Was the fortune of soldiers to be always at war
Sighting down the barrel at whatever comes?
Till the fighters forgot what they're doing it for
And the reason was lost in the sound of the drums

Was the fortune of soldiers to be always alone
Forgetting the faces of all their loved ones?
Far from their daydreams, far from their homes
Love songs were drowned in the sound of the drums

Don't you know the dream has come true?
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
When they say that peace could never be
That it's a fantasy they didn't know about you

Don't you know the dream has come true?
Don't you know the dream has come true?
When they say that peace could never be
They weren't imagining what one dreamer can do

It is the fortune of bankers and builders of arms
To worship the profit however it comes
Up in their towers, sheltered from harm
Far from the smoke and the sound of the guns

It is the fortune of dreamers to see what they see
To live with the scorn till the miracle comes
To teach us the music and show us the key
And the to silence the sound of the drums

Don't you know the dream has come true?
Don't you know the dream has come true?
When they say that peace could never be
That it's a fantasy they didn't know about you

Don't you know the dream has come true?
Don't you know the dream has come true?
When they say that peace could never be
They weren't imagining what one dreamer can do

It is the fortune of children to have such a choice
To grow up to be dreamers or builders of guns
Born to be angels, born to rejoice
Not to grow up to the sound of the drums

Don't you know the dream has come true?
Don't you know the dream has come true?
When they say that peace could never be
That it's a fantasy they didn't know about you

Don't you know the dream has come true?
Don't you know by now the dream has come true?
When they say that peace could never be
That it's a fantasy
