Mandolin Orange – Cavalry Lyrics

from album: This Side Of Jordan (2013)
Well, I've carried the world on my back with no more to obtain
The fire in the sky-- a dim light in my eye that's long faded
And I've stood where heroes have fallen their names turned to stone
Yet I remain nameless, the best friend the hero has known
Now I'm saving my strength for running
These days I'm saving my strength for running
From the age of kings when pride decided all fate
Long before war machines took charge and I was still 'wake
It was blind hope and blinders, with young men to carry between
All the death and the glory; believin' they're one and the same
Now I'm saving my strength for running
These days I'm saving my strength for running
Yes I've carried the world on my back with no more to obtain
The sword and the shield perched upon saddles and reins
But the stampedes of thunder, the cavalry's charge leaves me now
Your last war will come but I can not follow you down
No, I'm saving my strength for running
These days I'm saving my strength for running
I said these days I'm saving my strength for running
