Lyrics
Now he lies Never had a chance to say “I’m sorry” Never took the time to hear your side Now on the day you’re finely coming home It seems you’re not the only one that died Chorus: He went off to war Became a hero Saved those lives under duress Now he lies silent here, ground zero He’s coming home To finally rest Now he lies On a windy day, late October A plane lands carrying soldiers from the war U.S. Flags drape all around the coffins As the plane opens up her door Chorus: He went off to war Became a hero Saved those lives under duress Now he lies silent here, ground zero He’s coming home To finally rest Now he lies I remember that last day when you left home I told you, your not welcome here again Through the police investigations You proclaimed your innocence , until the end You said “Dad I didn’t do it” I didn’t hurt no one, I swear Don’t listen to the rumors Dad I love you, don’t you care? (In a low voice speak this line) I just turned my back and walked away We never spoke another word Since that day Chorus: He went off to war Became a hero Saved those lives under duress Now he lies silent here, ground zero He’s coming home To finally rest Now he lies Received an envelope a few days later After we laid our boy to rest I opened up a single page letter Said: “Dad I love you, your still the best” (In a low voice speak this line) Never had the chance to say “I’m sorry” Never took the time to hear your side And now the day you’re finely coming home Its seems you’re not the only one that died Chorus: He went off to war Became a hero Saved those lives under duress Now he lies silent here, ground zero He’s back home to stay and rest Now he lies (Fade out) He went off to war Became a hero Saved those lives under duress Written by Mike McCorison 2011
