  • Time? rolling along with the waves,
    A thousand miles away
    Holding you close in the rain,
    Seems just like yesterday

    Lost? hope in a faraway place
    And in my hand remains,
    A black and white print of a face,
    I'll never see again

    I gave my life to save her
    The ocean turned to red
    In the fall, in the fall, when the tide took them all
    Cut down like lambs at slaughter,
    Good men were left for dead
    In the fall, in the fall, when the tide took them all

    Love? served until death do us part,
    I'm drifting in the dark
    Wounded and wishing to fall,
    Into your faithful arms

    I gave my life to save her
    The ocean turned to red
    In the fall, in the fall, when the tide took them all
    Cut down like lambs at slaughter,
    Good men were left for dead
    In the fall, in the fall, when the tide took them all

    Beneath the sky of hate,
    Beyond the sea of pain,
    In heaven I will wait,
    Until we meet again

    I gave my life to save her
    The ocean turned to red
    In the fall, in the fall, when the tide took them all
    Cut down like lambs at slaughter,
    Good men were left for dead
    In the fall, in the fall, when the tide took them all Writer/s: AARON SOLOWONIUK, BEN KOWALEWICZ, IAN D'SA, JON GALLANT

  • Matt from Victoria, B.cThis song is not about a soldier, it's about a sailor...During the Second World War, German U boats would sink a ship, surface, and then proceed to gun down the survivors.
  • Liz from Markham, CanadaI love this song. It's so sad and it, yet again, shows Billy Talent's talent (tee-hee) to see other people's point of view.
  • Erin from Edm, United StatesBilly Talent is maybe one of the greatest bands ever...after Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, but I still love them.
