Song lyrics
These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many differents suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
The moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We were fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

Individually, there are much better. But together, all 5 blend together to create one of the truly great songs the world has seen.

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
Ive witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

Theres so many different worlds
So many differents suns
And we have just the one
But we live in different worlds

Now the suns gone to hell
And the moons riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But its written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

In the version I'm listening to, some of the lyrics are a little different to those posted.

Best by Dire Straits EVER!!! Love isn't a strong enough word to describe what I feel when I hear this song (It's almost up there with High Hopes by Pink Floyd )
