The Lyrics

This is a song I wrote many years ('86) ago to honor those who fought bravely in Vietnam. Not a funny song at all, but its a tribute to those who we too often gave the ultimate sacrifice. Some still do....
We should never try
To fight their battles
Why should we die
In a foreign place
All the lives we waste
Never really know the truth
Life's too short to waste

I felt so alone
As I left the plane from VietNam to go home
Though I try and try
I can only cry
Remembering all the pain I'd seen
And all my friends who died

I'll never be the same again
VietNam has left me shattered
Though the war was way back when
I live it every day
Never know whether I'll be free again
My emotions have been tattered
No I'll never be the same again
The pain won't go away

We should never try
To fight their battles
Why should we die
In a foreign place
All the lives we waste
Never really know the truth
Life's too short to waste

I'll never be the same again
VietNam has left me shattered
Though the war was way back when
I live it every day
Never know whether I'll be free again
My emotions have been tattered
No I'll never be the same again
The pain won't go away

My mind is always in a spin
I just can't help this state I'm in
People, they say I'm insane
I wonder if they would if they could feel the pain
They should have known that this could happen
They should have shown us some compassion
But on one really cares for me, please help...

No I'll never be the same again
VietNam has left me shattered
Though the war was way back when
I live it every day
Never know whether I'll be free again
My emotions have been tattered
No I'll never be the same again
The pain won't go away
