SAMURAI’S LAMENT (the recurring tale of war, love, honor, bravery and sorrow)

 

VERSE 1


Took a walk into my past

Saw my Mother and my Father

Must say it all went by too fast

Much regret it goes no farther

 

Some things simply come upon you

A part of life the looms beyond you

Some escape it and others face it

Some may run for time to catch their breath

 

VERSE 2

Looking out in time yet here

I see love in a family

Children growing with no fears

Now it fades and I feel empty

 

Some things simply come upon you

A part of life that looms beyond you

 

Some escape it and others face it

Some may run for time to catch their breath

Bridge 

I AM SO ASHAMED

(that) I AM SO AFRAID

I MUST  RISE HEAD UP HIGH

EVEN THOUGH I MAY DIE

 

CHORUS


DON’T CRY NOW

SAY GOODBYE NOW

I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW

 

I MUST GO NOW

Please LET GO NOW

I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW

 

I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW, IF THINGS GO WELL

 


VERSE 3

 

As the dawn breaks day

I begin to shudder

Glancing over you are sleeping

Do you now dream as a Mother

 

All our life lay in the balance

Can my foe share this the same

 

Can I rise up to this challenge?

Will our son be proud in name

 

I AM SO ASHAMED

(that) I AM SO AFRAID

I MUST RISE HEAD UP HIGH

EVEN THOUGH I MAY DIE

 

 

CHORUS

 

DON’T CRY NOW

SAY GOODBYE NOW

I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW

 

I MUST GO NOW

PLEASE LET GO NOW

I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW

 

I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW, IF ALL GOES WELL
