This is a song about the 1914 Christmas truce between the British, Germans and French in WW1. This event took place 100 years ago and shows the light of humanity can survive during horrible conditions.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Long we have waited, waited for a time the guns won't fire
I stand alone, a broken soul with no cause or return

Hard to remember it was just like this before the war
A girl by my side, no care in my young mind

Peace - across the front
Peace - across the front

Long we've forgotten through trenches we've made of mud
We hold out the hope for a letter of a loved one far away

Hard to remember it was just like this before the war
A girl by my side, no care in my young mind

Peace - across the land
Peace - for a thousand young souls
Peace - is coming at last
Peace
