Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Soldier (Harvey Andrews)
So, in reality the soldier didn't throw himself on the bomb.
And the children were already on the floor.
He (like the others in the room), turned his back on the bomb, and was killed by flying shrapnel.

It seems anyone could have been killed, which makes the whole thing more random than personal.

It's very simple to choose one's 'facts' when writing a song, especially when you have wide canvas to work on.

I'll wait and see what Harvey says...

Thanks, though.
