lyrics

He said goodbye in the pouring rain as the bus driver said “Its time to go”
Nobody wants to say goodbye to a pretty little wife and four month old
But he knows he’s got to try
Cause there’s heartache in the future from the things he can’t buy
He has to face up to the truth
There’s so much in this life he wanted to do
We never did such things we
never did what we wanted to do
We never did such things.
Now we lie to ourselves till we think it’s the truth
It won’t leave me alone
Something that feels strange
I’ll call you on the phone
But there’s something in the future I can’t change
He said “Yes Sir” to the Army man when they said to the front you will go
He shot a man to save another now he’s considered a hero
At times he wants to cry
Because to take a life is to die inside
Everyone says he was right
But now he can’t look into his wife’s eyes
Say I never did such things
Only did what I was told to do
I never did such things
Now I lie to myself till I think it’s the truth
It won’t leave me alone
Something that feels strange
I’ll call you on the phone
Now there is something in the past that I can’t change
So many times he stares at the wall seeing the bullet that started it all
Thinks about the dreams that were lost he looks at his life. Was it worth the cost?
I never did such things
I never did what I wanted to do
I never did such things
Now I lie to myself till I think it’s the truth
It won’t leave me alone
Something that feels strange
I’ll call you on the phone
There’s something in the past that I can’t change
