One of our Shadows for:
spintunes.blogspot.com/2010/10/spintunes-2-round-3-challenge.html
Spintunes2: Round 3 - Secondary Historical Figures:
Write a song about an unknown character from history, and what connection they had to a major historical event (fictionalization is fine).

No, that's all your getting.
No bio, that would cheapen the song in this instance.

lyrics

I couldn't leave with you
It
wasn't what I would choose
But
the choice was taken out of
Our hands
and they were tied
and
they told us who would go
and
how long they'd stay below
they
all stood congraulating
both my friends they sympathised
and
I knew then it was true
I just had this job to do
It
made it more bearable
to know

That hist'ry would recall
Today,
but down beneath it all
i
just couldn't shake it off
and keep that thought
from running through my mind

will they remember me at all?

I always said to you
that
I would give you the moon
if
i only had the chance but
that promise couldn't last
It
broke when they broke my heart
and
said I would play a part
but
I sat there devesated
while my friends were idolised
and
The pain within your eyes
is worse than that I feel inside
It
makes it unbearable
to know

That hist'ry would recall
Today,
but down beneath it all
i
just couldn't shake it off
and keep that thought
from running through my mind

will they remember me at-

-all I can say now
is I'll try
to silently wait
while hist'ry writes their names
and all I can do now
is to say I flew
but why does it feel
that after the fear
of planetfall
they wont remember me at all?


So here I am alone
oh
so many miles from home
i
see were the Eagle's gone
Where
valour and fame are won
but
thanks to the choice they made
now
Fortune favours the brave
as
i sit in my tin can
they take that one small step for man
and
the race for space is won
by America's new favourite sons
It
makes it unbearable
to know

That hist'ry will recall
Today,
but down beneath it all
i
just couldn't shake it off
and keep that thought
from running through my mind

will they remember me at all?
