Greg Masiello / Jamie Trent / Beth Nielsen Chapman

You look right through my eyes
Seems like all you see
Are smoke filled desert skies
Haunted memories

I can never understand
Those images so real
Of a lost and distant land
A sandbox battlefield
Sometimes only time can heal

You came back into my arms
With a shattered broken heart
Just a shadow of the man I’ve always known
As if the man of my dreams unafraid of anything
Never really made it home
Never really made it home

You lie here by my side
I know you’re not asleep
The battle scars you hide
A million miles too deep

There’s nothing I can say
There’s nothing I can do
I’m praying for the day
When I have all of you
And I pray we’ll make it through

Baby won’t you come back home
When you gonna come back home
