Lyric by jsc1966:

"the seasons changed / and with them so did I / the mountains called me / back where I began / to learn the truth / of my father and my land / to find my people and the magic in their song"

remember when we / nah, me too / days run together / like water and booze / keep thinkin i'll wake up / but the sun never shows / guess we'll try tomorrow / see how it goes
...but I keep tellin' myself that... (lead up to chorus)
...and I keep tellin myself (lead up to chorus)

last week seems so long ago / today seemed so far away / ev'ything changed in the blink of an eye / dropped out of the blue clear sky / can't go back to the life we had before

No comments

had so many / tomorrows in my today / missed so many right nows / that are back in yesterday
the years they flew by /began to finally understand / life ain’t the same as livin’/ when we’re walking all alone /you’ve stood by me / now I get honor you / with all the love that’s in my heart / and in the words of this song

No comments

the sea goes on forever / except when it’s your home / I’ll take you back to the place /our journey first began / to carry you upon my back is not a heavy load / but grief and heartache weighs me down / on this endless road

No comments

that’s the story I’ve heard / since I was a boy / don’t really remember / but I know it’s true / I’ve seen how you look at me / always been there / now that I’m grown / I get to repay and care/ for you

No comments

tired and weary / into the wind and through the storms / ya held me tightly in your arms / you protected me
the seasons changed / and with them so did I / the mountains called me / back where I began / to learn the truth / of my father and my land / to find my people and the magic in their song
seasons changed / Summer died to Fall / the earth howled and whispered / you held me through it all /
4) you didn’t have to / but did it anyway / the mystery_________ / of a mother’s love lifted me / like the waves to safety / in your arms. You carried me.

No comments

it didn’t take /too long before/ started walking on my own / stayed close to you awhile / but then began to roam

No comments

grew restless and started / walkin on my own / stayed close for awhile and began to roam /

No comments

Living in my broken heart / are memories of you / sharing stories with our son / the dad he never knew

No comments

His dogtag has been smoothed and worn / by my hands and tears / Touched so many times each day / to pray away my fears

No comments

you’ll never hear him talk about / that day in ’44 / when love showed up as courage / and saved me in the war
parked in front / where you grew up / just like you described/ to give your mom the envelope / says “open if I die”
The wheels touch down at Dover / sacred, holy ground / silent warriors are carried / from the plane without a sound
I never knew my angel / would be covered in tattoos / You told me that I'd be alright / and I could count on you

No comments

Squeeze our eyes/ Against the smoke and dust / and the ringing in our ears /

No comments

they said it was an honor / to make this final flight / but I can’t bear to face your mom / at Dover late tonight.
Scuffed and scratched / can barely read / your name and date you left / Can’t believe it’s been 10 years / since we fought and bled /

No comments

Don’t give up / hang on tight /together we'll get through / Just reach out / grab my hand / I will carry you /

No comments

He moves a little slower now / shoulders stooped with age / this old body that served him well /Has now become a cage /

No comments

mouth is dry and gritty / from the heat and dust / canteen’s empty / feet are raw / sweat is mixed with blood

No comments

I heard you screaming / I ran toward the sound / And picked up your body/ off of the ground

No comments

You say that you got this and / You’re doin’ fine / your eyes tell the truth / but your lips keep on lyin’ /

No comments

Scuffed and scratched / can barely read / your name and date you left / Can’t believe it’s been 10 years / since we fought and bled / This bracelet and my mem’ries / a tombstone on my wrist / in honor of my brother / With angels may you rest.

No comments

“Remember when you” trails off / realize you can’t hear / from the belly of this plane / taking you back home / they said it was an honor / to make this final flight / but I can’t bear to face your mom / at Dover late tonight.

No comments

Just reach out / grab my hand / together we’ll get through / Don’t give up / hang on tight / I will shoulder you / We never leave / a man behind / together til the end / We’re a tribe / a family / your brother and your friend
We started out together / together we will end / words can’t describe / the hell we’ve seen / that forged our bond, my friend / through fire we walked / and sometimes fell / but always made it through / we both said so many times / “I will carry you”

No comments

He moves a little slower now / shoulders stooped with age / this old body that has served him well / Has now become a cage / you’ll never hear him talk about / that day in ’44 / when love showed up as courage / and saved me in the war
We started together / but I fell behind / I let down my brothers / wounded my pride / stumbling and thirsty / fear grips my heart /Their outlines grow small / we drift further apart / alone and afraid / from the dark he appears with eyes that are kind / my brother you know we leave no man behind

No comments

mouth is dry and gritty / from the heat and dust / canteen’s empty / feet are raw / sweat is mixed with blood / ten miles in / ten to go / before we take our place / in killing men that we don’t know / in this God forgotten space.
He held the lamb in his arms / and held it oh so tight / he carried and protected you / through storms and through the night /He made a promise / you're not alone / He will carry you / all the way home // His angels were commanded / to guard all of your ways / they lift you with their mighty hands / bring peace to all your days.

O'Malley's from Ohio, the 5th of 7 kids / Vargas' was a doctor's boy south of San Antone / Smitty came from Georgia, he never knew his dad / now they're sons of Mother Green in Jalalabad

A single one of Daddy’s steps / Was three of my own / On the long cracked sidewalk / as we headed home / pretty soon I lagged behind / He was far ahead / Dad slowed down and turned around / then he gently said /

No comments

We were just like brothers / sorta not the same / I called you a Jarhead / You never used my name / When I heard you scream “hey Doc!” / I ran toward the sound / And picked your broken body/ Up off of the ground

One of Daddy’s steps / Was three of my own / On the cracked sidewalk / All the way back home / Didn’t take long ‘til I lagged behind / He was far I ahead / As I sat down crying / Then Daddy turned back / And gently said / “I can carry you”
You say that you got this and / You’re doin’ fine / But your eyes tell the truth / While your mouth keeps on lyin’ / A big pull of whiskey / Gun under your chin / Bravely afraid of / The ultimate sin
They got no idea / Things I’ve been through / They can’t understand / The things that I do / I get knocked down / And stand up again / God only knows / When this will end

No comments

Just lean back / Just let go / You’ve done your duty / Carried your load

No comments

I see you stumble / and fall once again / but you keep gettin’ up / you won’t let them win /
Through a blanket of darkness / I stumbled ahead / No rest for the weary / I’ll sleep when I’m dead
The silence was deafening / my eyes felt the sound I was flying forever / ‘til I hit the ground
Blinkin sweat from his eyes, he leans into the pain of the burden he lives with, the struggle and strain
