lyrics

The fall that I turned 21 I saw the world through setting suns
I felt as though I’d been to war, I drank and fought and woke up sore
I never in a hundred dreams thought I’d find you in that bar light gleam
I’d never felt like this before, the way before the war

To the only one, I lay down my gun
But I would fight you, if you ask me to

Army boots of canvas shoes, denim jacket of faded blue
I lived to serve and I served to live and I tried to earn what I couldn't give
But darkness came before my door and he seemed so weak and weathered worn
And I never would now feel before the way before the war

To the only one, I lay down my gun
But I would fight you, if you ask me to
To live a hundred years is an aging dream
But I would die for you to remain in youth

I feel the weight of 34 and the broken hearts all left on shore
I swear I cried as I walked away, my tears in mists of surf and spray
But I hear you call in winter blue and my oath to you burns true
I will always serve forever more for our love before the war

To the only one, I lay down my gun
But I would fight you, if you ask me to
To live a hundred years is an aging dream
But I would die for you
To be forever remembered in youth

Original rock and roll that feels strangely familiar and familiarly strange since 2006. Feel free to feel free. And remember, life goes on - until it don't.
