He Did Not Die In Vain

Lyrics: H A Howe/P Shart

Music: P Shart

 

Verse 1:

Another life taken away

Another youth buried today

A wasted journey, broken dreams

His coffin trailed by cries and screams

 

Bridge 1:

He was my hero since he was born

Now he’s the son I have to mourn

 

Chorus 1:

Tell me he did not die in vain

Inside my heart, he will always remain

And a folded flag, a medal won’t erase the pain

His tragic loss is no-one’s gain

Tell me he did not die in vain

He did not die in vain

 

Verse 2:

I shielded him from any harm

Now he is gone, victim of arms

Each war tears families apart

And every death breaks somebody’s heart

 

Bridge 2:

He was my hero since he was born

Now he’s the son I have to mourn

 

Chorus 2:

Tell me he did not die in vain

Inside my heart, he will always remain

And a folded flag, a medal won’t erase the pain

His tragic loss is no-one’s gain

Tell me he did not die in vain

 

Chorus 3:

Tell me he did not die in vain

Inside my heart, he will always remain

And a folded flag, a medal won’t erase the pain

His tragic loss is no-one’s gain

Tell me he did not die in vain

He did not die in vain

He did not die in vain

He did not die in vain
