lyrics

When I was seventeen, the story wasn’t written
But like a child I thought I knew the end
Then I was back at chapter one wide open ready to begin again
Wonderin’ how the hell do I just keep on writing
When all that I could see were my lost friends
The combat-to-home transition from the war abroad to the war within

I’m remembering the stepping stones that got me back
Starting at rock bottom through my path out of the black
To be a husband, a father
My wife, my daughters
My reasons to reappear
That’s how I got here

And they know that I’m still walking but I’m not walking alone anymore
Oh yeah and I still might be broken, but I’m not broken to the core
Sometimes I hear my demons out there knocking on the door
But I wouldn’t be where I am if I hadn’t been to hell before

I’m remembering the stepping stones that got me back
Starting at rock bottom through my path out of the black
To be a husband, and a father
My wife, my daughters
My reasons to reappear
That’s how I got here

With every bridge I crossed I got a little less lost
And the first time I shot up a flare, my brothers were there

I remember all the stepping stones that got me back
Starting at rock bottom through my path out of the black
To be a husband, a father
For my wife, for my daughters
She wouldn’t let me disappear
She’s how I got here
She’s how I got here
How I got here
