Saddest Victory

Written by Sandy Stewart.

Donít have to fight, doesnít have to be a war
Donít have to bother going off to sea
Thereís enough of a reason here
To make peace with me

Where is the passion
Well, you donít feel it yet
How could you now when it plays so hard to get
Iím missing in action, Iím missing the daysó
That you canít wish away.

So you have won, and you have conquered
And you have killed a friend in me
How does it feel . . .
Your saddest victory

The best part of plans canít hold the line
A heart misled couldnít stand the test of time
How I tried to stay
The banner waves inside your wall
A hero stands too proud, too tall
You got what you wanted, after all
But you canít wish away . . .

So you have won, and you have conquered
And you have killed a friend in me
How does it feel . . .
You just won your saddest victory

And so my friend, as you count your lies
Does a man forget what the soul denies
Well, you can try to forget, so you sayó
But you wonít wish away the day . . .

So  you have won, and you have conquered
And you have lost a friend in me
How does it feel
You just won your saddest victory

Iím laying on the ground,
Iím laying on the ground . . .
