lyrics

NEVER FORGET

MatH / Jay Clementi

I got a grey duct tape photo album
Held together by a binder ring
It’s in my pocket like a wallet
To remind me

How grateful I am for the heroes in those uniforms
They were rangers and my brothers always charging towards the storm

I’ll never forget I’ll never forget
Their faces or their names
And I’ll never let, and I’ll never let
Their honor and memory fade
The freedom they made for me
Depth of their bravery
Example that they set
I’ll never forget I’ll never forget I’ll never forget

I know I’m lucky that my family still has me
I’ve dogged some bullets and even danced with an IED

The bad guys in that card deck you know I don’t recall
But it’s a different story with the guys that got 'em all

I’ll never forget I’ll never forget
Their faces or their names
And I’ll never let, and I’ll never let
Their honor and memory fade
The freedom they made for me
Depth of their bravery
Example that they set
I’ll never forget never forget never forget

I stand and I fight and I sing and I write for the ones that are living on
I think of the families of the ones that didn’t make it home

And I’ll never forget I’ll never forget
Their faces or their names
And I’ll never let, and I’ll never let
Their honor and memory fade
The freedom they made for me
Depth of their bravery
Example that they set
I’ll never forget never forget never forget
I’ll never forget never forget never forget
I’ll never forget
