lyrics

Robb Robichaud / Darden Smith

Hey there brother, I see you’re face
I can tell you’ve been in some other place
Well just between us, welcome back home
I bet you’re feeling a little lost and alone
Most of your family, maybe some of your friends
Wish you would be like you were back when
They might want to hear some stories, raise a toast
But they don’t want to give you what you need the most

But you’re ok
You’ve just come so far
We’re all living
Life after the war

Hey there sister, I know you’ve seen some bad things
Night comes round, I know what that brings
They got a little name for it, PTSD
I got it too, you’re just like me

You’re gonna be ok
You’ve just come so far
We’re all living
Life after the war

Don’t go to the bottle, don’t go to the meds
That ain't gonna help the demon in your head
Lean on your brothers, to get what you need
Lean on your sisters, and lean on me

We’re gonna be ok
We’ve just come so far
We got to keep living
After the war
We got to keep living
After the war
