She cries herself to sleep every night,
holding on with all her might.
She worries about what the future will bring,
Will she lose everything?
 
She thinks that she's all alone,
And that nowhere feels like home.
She's got a lot of sadness in her eyes,
Her pain and suffering from all the lies.
 
Her teardrops are falling down like rain,
Her heart is broken from all the pain.
There is so much darkness in her soul,
Which makes her very cold.
 
Her teardrops are falling, falling...

Between music and fervor,
Where lustfulness whispers,

He sat stiffly at the end of the bar.
His face sagging and covered with scars.
He thought back on why he was at this place.
That fair young lady covered in satin and lace.
 
He asked the bartender for another drink.
Maybe one more shot would help him think.
She wanted a strong hero fresh from the war.
But, she had no idea just what was in store.
 
She not only got the strong man she had seen.
She got his burdens of war, which was like a bad dream.
The sleepless nights and shadows always in the corner.
She found that this hero was destined to be a loner.
 
One night she was gone, a feather in the wind.
So, he headed to the bar to let the drinking begin.

I have seen the sun set in the frozen valleys of Bosnia.
I have seen it rise in the burning dunes of Iraq.
I have held a new born child as it breaths its first breaths of life.
I have held a dying soldier as he breathed his last.
I have tried to give life and I have taken it.
I have felt the seething anger deep inside.
I have lost love and cried.

Do these actions make me a God or a devil?
On my judgment day I will revel.
Because then the truth will be known.
And maybe just maybe I will finally find a home.

Are sad and lack in splendor.
And my heart beats no more,

Why did you come back, if you didn't want to stay?
My feelings are real and not for you to play
Why do I still love you and still care a lot?
