LyricsEdit

When the war is over got to get away
Pack my bags to no place in no time no day
You and I i we used each others shoulder
Still so young - but somehow so much older
How can I go home and not get blown away

Ain't nobody gonna steal this heart away
Ain't nobody gonna steal this heart away

When the war is over got to start again
Try to hold a trace of what it was back then
You and I we sent each other stories
Just a page I'm lost in all it's glories
How can I go home and not get blown away

You and I had our sights set on something
Hope this doesn't mean our days are numbered
I've got plans for more than a wanted man
All around this chaos and madness
Can't help feelin' nothin' more than sadness
Only choice to face it the best I can
