battlefield nurse

from by Diane Cluck

lyrics

[ she's got eyes like a battlefield nurse
the kind that keep you clm
when all around you things are getting worse ] x 2

dying all around me
can i save but one or two ?
he reaches out to touch me
it's the last thing he'll ever do
and sometimes i feel like a battlefield nurse
it's a role that i was born for
and did not need to rehearse
they say, 'lady, tell me, how bad is it ?'
they grimace and curse
and i say, 'don't worry soldier,
things could be a whole lot worse'

i hold his body and wonder
was this comfort that i gave ?
i felt him drowning in me;
he believed he was being saved
so i told him,
'i am not a battlefield nurse.
i've never saved a soldier and the war keeps getting worse.
there is no kindness to be found here,
these eyes are just a curse.
the nursemaid is a liar
she's the chauffer of your hearse.”

she's got eyes like a battlefield nurse
the kind that keep you calm
when all around you things are getting worse
she's got eyes like a battlefield nurse
the kind that keep you calm
when all around you
all around you
all around you
things
are
getting
worse
oh...
