lyrics

They brought you back home on the train last night
They sought you out and you had lost the fight
4,000 miles of Atlantic sea wasn't enough to stop you hurting me

We loved so loud
It rolls like thunder
Overboard, we go under
I'll show you where's safe to hide
Mark the sails, this Navy's pride

I wash the colours from your pale dead skin
The blue and red and white they dressed you in
They say the ocean took its toll on you
Your body battered red and white and blue

"It's true Sarge, he took it out on me
You knew Sarge, that he took it out on me'

We loved so loud
It rolled like thunder
Overboard, we go under
I'll show you where's safe to hide
Marked on sails, this Navy's pride

Love so loud
