lyrics

I long for a time before I knew,
The terrible things a man could do.
A time where I could walk with you,
Down those red roads of home.

The bombs they stopped some 10 years ago
It seems it’s all I’ll ever know
Some things a man just can’t let go
No matter what he tries
I see the guns all through the night
I wake up ready for a fight
The only enemy in my sight
More red tape and lies

I long for a time before I knew,
The terrible things a man could do.
A time where I could walk with you,
Down those red roads of home.

In the mirror all I see
(Is) a shell of what I used to be
Standing right in front of me
A prisoner of his pain.
We kept the peace as best we could
Saw things that no man ever should
And no one ever understood
We’d never be the same.

I long for a time before I knew,
The terrible things a man could do.
A time where I could walk with you,
Down those red roads of home.


In the mirror all I see
(Is) a shell of what I used to be
Standing right in front of me
A prisoner of his pain.
We kept this peace as best we could
Saw things that no one ever should
And no one ever understood
We’ll never be the same.
