“Sound the Bugle”
Lyrics by Gavin Greenaway
Written for the soundtrack of
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
Sound the bugle now… play it just for me
As the seasons change… remember how I used to be
Now I can’t go on…I can’t even start
I’ve got nothing left… just an empty heart.
I’m a soldier… wounded so I must give up the fight
There’s nothing more for me… lead me away
Or leave me lying here
Sound the bugle now… tell them I don’t care
There’s not a road I know that leads to anywhere
Without a light, I fear that I will stumble in the dark
Lay right down and decide not to go on
Then from on high, somewhere in the distance There’s a voice that calls,
“Remember who you are… if you lose yourself,
Your courage soon will follow,
So be strong tonight… remember who you are”
Yeah, your a soldier now,
Fighting in a battle,
To be free once more.
Yeah, that’s worth fighting for.
The only way to deal with an unfair world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. –Albert Camus
