[F]So is this the beginning [G]or the end?
[C]The last two soldiers [G]on the battlefield
[Am]Survivors of the war
[F]They aim at one another [C]while their mothers [G]beg the lord
"If you're l[C]istening, I'm [G]missing him
So s[Am]omehow bring him [Em]home.
[F]How did it come to t[G]his?"
[C]So the soldiers lift their ri[G]fles
[Am]And they're aiming at the head
[F]They think of their first lo[C]ve before they t[G]ake their final breath
[C]And somewhere in the d[G]istance they hear s[Am]omething someone s[Em]aid:
[F]"How did it come to t[G]his?"
