Once I Was

This song is by Cowboy Junkies and appears on the compilation The Village (2009).

Once I was a soldier
And I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
And I brought home fresh meat for you

Once I was a lover
And I searched behind your eyes for you
Soon there'll be another
To tell you I was just a lie

And sometimes I wonder just for a while
Will you ever remember me?

And though you have forgotten
All of our rubbish dreams
I find myself searching
Through the ashes of our ruins

For the days when we smiled
And the hours that ran wild
With the magic of our eyes
And the silence of our words

And sometimes I wonder just for a while
Will you ever remember me?
Ever remember me
Ever remember me
