Lyrics

I went back to the sandbox
Because I felt like a liar
Selling life insurance
With my friends under heavy fire I had to fight
Fighting for these brothers at my side
Doing what my heart tell me is right

Been losing track of days been moving at a million miles an hour
Missile hit the base while I was singing in the shower
Mom if I die just know that this is what I was born to do
You can take that truth away with you

As another fallen soldier
Is cut down in his prime
He went in knowing the cost
That he could be gone before his time
Makes me think how I could be a better man
Blessed is the soldier for doing what he can

Just the other day I got the box you all sent out to me
It would blow your mind if you knew how much it meant to me
When I’m all alone
Just to hear a voice over the phone

‘Cause it can be disheartening
Thinking no one really cares
That everyone forgets us trying to get their clicks and likes and shares
I say I’m fine but we’re putting our futures on the line
And it don’t make much sense some of the time

As a another fallen soldier
Is cut down in his prime
He went in knowing the cost that he could be gone before his time
And he only knew his children
From voices on the phone
Blessed is the soldier
who finds his way back home
Blessed is the soldier who finds his way back home

In an armored car in Kandahar
We hit an ied
It ripped to shreds one of my friends
We were talking about old tv
And there goes our happy ending
There goes our 4th July
If I get back after this tour
I know that I will do one more

As another fallen soldier
Is cut down in his prime
He went in knowing the cost
That he could be gone before his time
And gave up his own freedom
So I could have mine
Blessed is the soldier that still knows how to cry
Blessed is the soldier that still knows how to cry
