Music Tip: Tom Dice – A soldier for his country


Belgium – Tom Dice made his country proud this year in Oslo achieving a 6th place for Belgium with his song “Me and my guitar”. A few days ago his album “Teardrops” ,that is already quite successful in his home country, was released in Germany. I have listened to the album and can really strongly recommend it to you! Apart from his Eurovision entry the album also includes an acoustic version of Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding love”

There is one song in particular however, that captured my attention: “A soldier for his country”. The anti-war song has a great melody and even better lyrics. I hope you like it:

The Video:

Lyrics:

I still don’t know who I am
The only thing I know is that my name is Sam
And I wonder where I lived
I remember a soldier and he’s giving me a gift

And I’m bleeding
I lay down in a hole all alone, without a meaning
And I suffer
Yet I’m still alive and I have nothing more to offer

Oh, I’m not scared, I am ready
I release myself
Oh, I’m not scared, I am ready
I release myself

Shooting people, that’s my duty
I almost killed myself completely in fury
And I’m not made for this
The war is almost over, there’s a light in the darkness

I feel guilty
My family is standing, waiting, it’s over, I’ve been lonely
I shoot a bullet through my head
My pain will be over, and I’ll be dead

Oh, I’m not scared, I am ready
I release myself
Oh, I’m not scared, I am ready
I release myself

Oh, I’m not scared, I am ready
I shoot myself
Oh, I’m not scared, I am ready
I shoot myself
