Time waits for no one, but love waits forever.
Everytime i think about you, i start to cry
As i feel the tears well up in my eyes
i curse the men in suits who sent you to die.
Hopped on a plane, never again to see home
Left me sitting here, so lost and alone
i miss you so much but there’s nothing i can do
Because our greedy f*cking president killed you
No gun in his hand but he gave the orders
For you and your commrades to storm the border
Fighting for freedom and democracy never seemed so surreal
i savored every card and letter, tried to feel what you feel
Time has gone by, almost three whole years
But I still can’t put to rest all my fears
i wonder how many other souls have been ripped asunder
From having to bury loved ones six feet under?
“Iraq War Veteran” makes you sound so old…
Now the phrase just makes my blood run cold.
