So all the lyrics sites seem to say the 2nd verse of Gareth Emery's Soldier as saying:

When you're falling down and you're on the fence
I will be your shield I will keep you safe

However what it actually sounds like (and what would make more sense):

When you're falling down and your armor fails
I will be your shield I will keep you safe

Is there a more official source that could clarify this for me?


I guess Roxanne Emery's Facebook post on 22 April 2013 can be considered as the most official source:

When you're falling down, and your armour fails, I will be your shield, I will keep you safe. When you know you can't make it on your own... I will be your solider <3

(Emphasis mine)

  • OK, follow up question, what's the correct spelling of armor/armour? JK... thanks for the great source! – Jonathan Mee Jan 3 '18 at 13:14
