Tom Gilmore / Peter Nardolillo / Darden Smith

I’m afraid to go to sleep
Faces I won’t meet
Names I’ll never know
Where’d they go

My brothers and my friends
Stories in the wind
Here then they’re gone
No right or wrong

Some folks have all the luck
Some have none
The damage done

When I was a little boy
I had soldier toys
It was hard to tell
Why some fell

Some came home
To sit alone
Pretend they’re doing well
In a living hell

Some folks have all the luck
Some have none
The damage done

I’m torn inside
No place left to hide
There’s still a hole
In my soldier's soul

Some folks have all the luck
Some have none
With the damage done
I’m not the only one
Look around you some
Damage done
