An Ordinary Man

This song is a very personal one to me. When I received the music from Pete I had not long heard that someone I knew had been killed on active service in Afghanistan and I was already thinking along the lines of a softer track regarding that subject.

I tried to avoid the trap of writing a ‘tribute’ song and endeavoured instead to write something of perceptions and feelings from both sides… and the questions going through all our heads when we hear of another soldier dying. I hope I’ve achieved that.

In memory of WO2 Dan Shirley and all those who have fallen while serving their country.
