The first time we met, it was on the train
I was heading back to my old home again
With a good shirt on my back, I couldn’t stay for long
We are heroes was ringing out in my head

The next time we met, it was on the boat to France
He liked the rise of the waves as they climbed up, besides, it was better than home

And the great Cape Farewell stood low
And oh we sang songs as we were leaving

Not long after we were at Messines
What a scene, it was hard to believe what it means
As he spoke of his farmland back home

But the great Cape Farewell was nowhere to be seen
And oh we sang songs on the sinking ground

Out on the dusk line
I sit down amongst the grass and stones
Out on the skyline there’s a distant light
My mind is numb
