Sabaton – Christmas Truce

Christmas Truce

[Verse 1]
Silence
Oh I remember the silence
On a cold winter day
After many months on the battlefield
And we were used to the violence
Then all the cannons went silent
And the snow fell
Voices sang to me from no man's land

[Pre-Chorus 1]
We are all
We are all
We are all
We are all friends

[Chorus]
And today we're all brothers
Tonight we're all friends
A moment of peace in a war that never ends
Today we're all brothers
We drink and unite
Now Christmas has arrived and the snow turns the ground white

[Post-Chorus]
Hear carols from the trenches
We sing the Holy Night
Our guns laid to rest on the snowflakes
A Christmas in the trenches
A Christmas on the front far from home

[Verse 2]
Madness
How I remember the sadness
We were hiding our tears
In a foreign land where we face our fears
We were soldiers
Carried the war on our shoulders
For our nations
We stand and we bury our friends

[Pre-Chorus 2]
We were all
We were all
We were all
We were all friends

[Chorus]
And today we're all brothers
Tonight we're all friends
A moment of peace in a war that never ends
Today we're all brothers
We drink and unite
Now Christmas has arrived and the snow turns the ground white

[Post-Chorus]
Hear carols from the trenches
We sing the Holy Night
Our guns laid to rest on the snowflakes
A Christmas in the trenches
A Christmas on the front far from home

[Pre-Chorus 2]
We were all
We were all
We were all
We were all friends

[Chorus]
And today we're all brothers
Tonight we're all friends
A moment of peace in a war that never ends
Today we're all brothers
We drink and unite
Now Christmas has arrived and the snow turns the ground white

[Outro]
A Christmas on the frontline
We walk among our friends
We don't think about tomorrow
The battle will commence
When we celebrate Christmas
We thought about our friends
Those who never made it home
When the battle had commenced

The song “Christmas Truce” is the first single from upcoming album “The War To End All Wars”. The song will be released to all digital music platforms on October 29 and it will by accompanied by a cinematic music video. “Christmas Truce was our highest priority when we decided to write songs about World War One. Not only was it the most requested topic from our fans, but it was, for us, the most emotional story from the war. This song took us years to create since we wanted the music to reflect the mood honestly and it was a big challenge, but we feel we managed to write a song that captures the spirit of this day, over a century ago.”
