He awoke at three this morning
With confusion in his head
He’d been with a lifelong friend
Who since yesterday was dead

Well it wasn’t actually yesterday
More like three years ago
But the way his grieving was
You’d never really know

He sat there for hours
In silence in his bed
Trying to change the memories
Trapped inside his head

With the rising of the sun
The darkness turned to light
He rose and prepared for battle
Another lonely day to fight

He was once a Soldier
And ever more will be
A man who paid the price
For others to be free
