If you want something done right, DIY. The original poster of this Katherine Jenkins solo of "Requiem for a Soldier" for the BBC didn't post the lyrics as I suggested (so much for honoring Soldiers that you cannot lift a few fingers) so I decided to present the song correctly on our YOUTUBE channel here.

The Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks-produced epic World War II television series Band of Brothers is based on a true story adapted from the best-selling book by Stephen Ambrose. The story depicts a
regiment of U.S. Army Airborne Soldiers (Paratroopers) who parachute into France on D-Day, and climaxes with their daring
capture of Hitler's fortified mountain retreat in Bavaria. The music was composed by the award-winning Michael Kamen, and the new lyrics are by English songwriter Frank Musker. Sung by the lovely Katherine Jenkins in London, England.

Requiem for a Soldier

You never lived to see
What you gave to me
One shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty

With a host of brave unknown Soldiers
For your company, you will live forever
Here in our memory

In fields of sacrifice
Heroes paid the price
Young men who died for old men's wars
Gone to paradise

We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you'll see we can live together
When all the world is free

I wish you'd lived to see
All you gave to me
Your shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty

We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you'll see - we can live together
When all the world is free
