The Trooper

I drew Eddie Hunter a few days ago ^^ Now he's above my bed. Next to Eddie from 'Killers' and Eddie from 'Piece of mind'. And... next to Eddie's head... It's hard to explain so I'd better stay quiet ;)  Ed 'The Trooper' is one of my favourites. Because of the beautiful British flague. And madness in his eyes. Eddie has got unmercyful look. I suppose ;) I simply adore him. The song is also amazing.
My red orange tea, too ;)

"The Trooper"

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back.

The Bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall.

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day.

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below.

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan.

PS I am working as a shop assistant helper ^^ It is not really ambitious job but it's all about earning money. Just a few weeks and just a few bucks. Nothing special.

PPS Sorry for so short note but I am very sleepy...  Very, very, very sleepy... I am almost sleeping during writing these words ;)

Take care,
