ONE STEP FORWARD

I'm sending you these letters across miles and miles of water.
Tell Stevie that I saw his friends and mother that I love her.
Well, I know I haven't been here long and I know it seems much longer
but every letter you write back makes me a little stronger.

Everybody here has seen as many years as me.
It's only now they realise what they are here to see.
So I'll take my pen and I'll write you a note and send it off in a letter
and we'll hope that writing these troubles down will make me feel better.

One step forward oir one step left.
I raise my gun and I take my aim.
I'm just a pawn in the government's game.

The first day I was posted was the longest I have known.
I can't believe the bitterness the human heart can show.
The hatred of another is a blindness in their eyes.
All I do is stand between them wondering why.

One step forward oir one step left.
I raise my gun and I take my aim.
I'm just a pawn in the government's game.

Little boy stand with stones in hand and cold eyes of steel.
I wish I could throw my rifle down and tell him how I feel.
Well, I know I haven't been here long and I know it seems much longer
but every letter you post to me makes me a little stronger, stronger.
