"Soldier" By: Gavin Degraw
Presented By: Tehya Horbach

The Theme of this song to me is Everlasting Love, and how it is a feeling that can not be broken. It is a feeling that no decision, person, or object can stop. The poetic devices help convey the theme by helping the writer express his feelings in such a way that makes you really think about how a Man should be in a relationship. "When you get worried I'll be your soldier" is the main statement in this poem that relates to how a love can be so strong that a man is willing to risk his life for you. The theme relates to the title "Soldier" by basically stating that he will be her protector no matter what.
Stanza 2: "Afraid of what they might lose, might get scraped or they might get bruised. You could beg them, whats the use? That's why it's called the moment of truth."

Meaning:Your going to get hurt either way so what's the point in denying the truth.
Stanza 7: My aim is so true, I wanna show you, I'll try forever, I'm never gonna say "surrender"

Meaning: He is not going to stop loving her and he will never "surrender" to their love.

Stanza 3: "I'll get it if you need it, I'll search if you don't see it, You're thirsty I'll be your rain, you get hurt I'll take your pain. I know you don't believe it, but i said it and i still mean it, when you heard what i told you, when you get worried I'll be your soldier.

Stanza 8:


Stanza 4: "Funny when times get hard, at the last moment when you're supposed to charge, Always on the longest yard, Oh, they feel their feet getting cold"
