Katherine Jenkins - Requiem For A Soldier Lyrics

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 into 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
When all the world is free, 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

    Thank you to everyone in THIS world that helps make it safer & help others as the world gets greedily and people lose respect, then shall the earth turn on man kind then shall all pray that the lord of all mighty save them. Await for he his returning to replace all that he gave and preached in the beginning, wen all have forsaking me and respect vanished shall they be destruction in earth alowed be they name thy kingdom come thy shall be done. LOVE IS MORE POWERFUL than the big bang it was love that made the big bang to start with OK LOVE YOU XX

  58. AKSAM6

    It is fitting that Requiem For A Soldier was composed by the late Michael Kamen, an American, the lyrics written by Englishman Frank Musker, the music set as the theme for Band of Brothers, a Shakespearian reference referring to a company of American paratroopers and this rendition sung by a beautiful Welsh talent. It commemorates those who gave their lives in achieving victory over tyranny; two of those nations represented in this Allied effort here.

  59. polkanet

    She´s an icon, it is Britain, she is Britain. Nobody embodies this like she does.

    Lill Apabo

    I think most other europeans see a football supporter with a strong dialect, good confidence and a beer in his hand when they think of someone who "is" Britain.

    Frank Rizzo

    Best looking teeth I've ever seen on a Brit!


    +Frank Rizzo What the fuck? Why the best looking teeth of a British person? I don't get it? Are you insulting us saying we have bad teeth? That's a strange one.. Just like Americans.

  60. Keith Muir

    Brexit proved that Wales isnt any different than Cornwall just another county of England. Wales has no separate institutions of law or money. Wales is just a county of England.


    @Keith Muir : Moron. Wakes has its own government and parliament. You are just another idiot remoan shitter who abuses anyone who dares not to follow your petty diktats.



  62. Andrew Ross

    Katherine Jenkins will always be Number one

  63. kenneth kadzielawski

    I cry every time that I hear this beautiful yet haunting song ... yet I keep coming back over and over again . God Bless Them ALL .

  64. Shawn Darling

    God bless to our troops

  65. marielionne06

    que peut on dire de plus beau que cette créature ?


    Thank you to all our Brave Boys and Girls ,Brits and Americans,Thanks God Bless.

    Philip Bird

    it wasn't just the Brits and Americans there were the British commonwealth which includes Canada


    The Soviets carried the majority of the fighting. Destroyed like 88% of german field divisions. The Allies was a very multi-national force and every nation contributed greatly.

  67. My Lady

    So beautiful!

  68. drew walker-armitage

    Moved me to tears

  69. kwon know

    Not being familiar with this singer, I was stunned when she opened her mouth and began to sing. This angel has the voice of an angel.

    +Seeker58 I always have to correct my friends that it wasn't Hans Zimmer.

  74. Everett Cox

    I wish Jackie Evancho would sing this great tribute to our military. As an old soldier myself, the song touched me like it did Katherine.

    Kilmarnock Westies

    Thank you for your service, Everett.

    Ray Geary

    Everett Cox Agree

  75. milazotes1

    Wish I could make out her lyrics. Love the voice but opera, to me, is just hitting notes and making vowels.

    Everett Cox

    +milazotes1 She has always had an issue with unintelligibility with her Classical voice. And her tone and vibrato are horrible to say the least.

    HOC fairseas

    +Everett Cox JYO, I personally thought she was great, Miss Jenkins must be doing something right, because she has only like won like 5 awards in the UK, including the ''Classical Britt Award'' twice, ''Choir Girl of the Year'' three times, what music awards have you won Mr. Music critic? Probably none! Personally I think she has a great tone and vibrator. What music school did you graduate from? Miss Jenkins has graduated from the ''Royal Academy of Music'' in London with high honors--plus is a certified degree music teacher!!! If you don't have anything nice to say about the Britts--don't say noth'n at all Mr. E. Cox, thank you...

    Everett Cox

    +Kyle Cymru Her pop voice is very good. I could listen to her sing that genre all day.

    Her Classical/Opera voice is horrible. Not one opera production house has ever offered her a job. She has often complained about that, saying the reason is she's "too pretty" and "too thin", insulting the opera singers like Elina Garanca and Renee Fleming who are just as fit and almost as beautiful as she is. Fleet Street pounds out the battles for all the money they can get.

    Personally, I like Katherine. She's well-spoken, sings for lots of charities and very bravely goes into war zones and entertains her troops abroad(which almost got her killed twice). She is also one of the most beautiful women in the world, and she and Jackie are great friends, having sung a duet together with David Foster on piano.

    But she is not an opera singer and never will be. Oh and Katherine is Welsh not English...

    HOC fairseas

    @Everett Cox
    , Miss Katherine is not an opera sing-nor has she ever claimed to be, she is a classical cross-over singer like she has always stated, who can sing pop classically-that's why there called cross-over singers. But she has won the classical Britt award twice, largest selling classical singer UK history--so she doesn't have to apologize to any one in the world, you are correct--yes she is Welsh-I already know that,  I am of Welsh decent as well, I've been following  Miss Jenkins since she was a young girl, in Wales, my mothers family is from Liangollen,Cymru--which is the true name of Wales--Wales is a name that the English gave to us. Cymru (Welsh) is her first language -English is her second, she speaks English with a Welsh accent. Miss Jenkins--since she lives in The United Kingdom she is also Britt-British! but of Cymru decent aka: Welsh. Sorry if I gave you the impression that Miss Jenkins was English-it wasn't my intention. Miss Jackie Evancho is a great singer-she is also very popular in the UK and also Deutschland, there screaming for her to do a European tour in the near future, have a great day!   I'm not a big fan of stage opera-so I'm so glad Katherine and Jackie have decided not to go that route--the forces forbid-- LOL

  76. smcliffhanger492

    I for one am not taken in by the hype of Ms. Jenkins. Yes she is very pretty but her vocal skills are average to just above average. Easy on the eyes not so easy on the ears.


    Difficult mate.

  77. D Storm

    In the mold of Vera Lynn

  78. charlie hardinge

    She has been given this gift to sing by our Christ Jesus


    +charlie hardinge  She really is not very good.


    +smcliffhanger492 Maybe that was the Point? since yeshua most likely never existed and thus couldn't give anything... XD


    @SonsOfLorgar LOL Probably right, she's another good looking so-so singer who has been hyped by her record company, they're a dime a dozen.

    Oh yeeeee

    So you go there to make money too but not kiling people directly .no.you by name of peace and art .why you dont sing en africa is because they have no petroleo?

    Forgive my inglesh


    +khawla makhlouf Africa does have oil (Chinese weapons to Zimbabwe, remember?) and copper (see "The Wild Geese") and diamonds (see "Blood Diamond") and uranium (see honest people being put in great danger as punishment for denouncing the lies about Iraqi WMD programs) and some *fascinating* viruses and a huge population on which to test new anti-tuberculotic drugs of dubious safety (see "The Constant Gardener") and lions (until rich dentists shoot them) and gorillas (unless we've driven them to extinction too) and lots of water (in some areas) ...
    ... and this little parasite with a two-host cycle, that comes out of water snails in sunlight, swims around, finds mammalian skin, tunnels in, rides through the bloodstream to the lungs, goes through the lung lining, gets coughed up into the mouth and swallowed, goes through the stomach, latches onto the intestinal lining, feeds on the mammal host and produces eggs which go out through the mammal's arse and into the water, where snails eat them. The eggs hatch inside the snails, feed on the snails, grow a bit and wait for sunlight before coming out to swim around in the river water.

    Sableagle.I now how is things go on .about medicine ohhh I can make book,s because I,m a DR en medicine,so ,I dont see any diference between farmaceutical industrys and narco trafic even I see that farmaceutical dont make original coca as a plant free because it make people good and that it cause danger for his industry.people dont know any truth they look but dont see , because is easier no think and believe every thing because its too much rong things to fix.and this is what bad people discover so it makes them go on.

    She's like a little porcelain doll, imagine if the wild men of the Taliban or ISIS got their hands on her, What? 

    The Lone Outlaw

    What would you think if Isis or the Taliban got their hands on you or your family? Your remarks are beyond inappropriate get some respect for her hard work that went into this song and get some respect for the men and women who gave everything to keep people safe from the monsters that kill innocent people because their god or gods told them to. Be thankful that you are so fortunate to live free.


    @russionanacho You just thumbed up your own comment, that is akin to a dog licking it's own balls. As for the rest of your inane PC-Zionist clap trap, I honestly couldn't give two fucks about these men and women you lionize who go around the world invading and murdering innocent people for grubby hook nosed Khazar bankers. I think you get my thinking, now fuck all the way off scum. 

  90. FroggieTheR0gue

    My God, she could have sung opera.


    +FroggieTheR0gue I think she does also. I have seen several where she does that. E.g. Nessun Dorma.


    Thanks! I've been listening to her since you told me that she sings opera. She has a very rich, clear and strong voice. Plus she's hot.
    Right now I listening to Canto Della Terra, exquisite.


    +FroggieTheR0gue No problem! Hehe, yeah it is not that often you see a charming girl like her with such talent AND looks :) Quite a gem :)

  91. GingerWho9

    I've always loved this song too. The band of brothers is my favorite mini series. I absolutely love how it was filmed. The only other movie I've found that's as good as a band of brothers is saints and soldiers somehow this song fits both movies.

  92. Luke Cocchi

    Band of Brothers theme!

    She is a shining example of what is right in this world :-)

    Your soldiers are not heroes, they are criminals but you continue to applaud the show like bastards.....
    You are just stupid machines,  They teach you in order to be their slaves and you don't even able to asking why!!! because you are fucking stupid and racists....

    Then why did you watch this?

    Brandon Tseng

    I bet you're the type of person that sees conspiracies around every corner and lurking in every shadow.  It's obvious  you don't know much about war in the first place.  Come back to me when you have required the brainpower to understand what war is.
