lyrics

24 FACES, 24 LIVES
Lewis McDonald / Darden Smith

These bad memories, like a plague upon my mind
They make my spirit feel so low
Trying to make new memories
Fill my mind with joy
I don’t want to be a man
Living with an empty soul

24 faces, 24 lives
They left mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters
Husbands children and wives
They come to me in my dreams at night
They talk to me every day
I embrace that PTS demon
So that demon will go away

These bad memories, like a plague upon my mind
They make my spirit feel so low
Trying to make new memories
Fill my mind with joy
I don’t want to be a man
Living with an empty soul

Every day, search for a way to let go of my past
It’s a heavy load it’s a crooked road
But I’m on a new path
I see my daughter’s smile
My son, walk down the aisle
It’s the simplest things
It’s my faith in the lord it’s love of the woman
That wears my wedding ring

These bad memories, like a plague upon my mind
They make my spirit feel so low
Trying to make new memories
Fill my mind with joy
I don’t want to be a man
Living with an empty soul
