lyrics

SOUL OF A SOLDIER
Todd Rosenfield / Darden Smith

Soul of a soldier
Soul of a soldier

Susie Qs and Ambien
Either I’m a zombie or I’m a wreck
Between 1:15 and a quarter to 2:00
Brother it’s all hands on deck
Crackle on the phone line
Give my buddies a call
To see who’s doing good, who’s barely holding on
And who just hit a wall

Soul of a soldier
Soul of a soldier
It never goes away
The feeling never fades
So many faces in damned places
It takes a heavy toll
On the soul of a soldier

Family and friends whisper
How I’ve changed
Why am I so different
Why so strange

Suddenly it’s morning, Tuesday
The sun is in the sky
Every day’s like Halloween
I’m all dressed up as a regular guy
We held each other’s lives
In each other’s hands
Till someone has your back like that
How could you understand

Soul of a soldier
Soul of a soldier
It never goes away
The feeling never fades
So many faces in damned places
It takes a heavy toll
On the soul of a soldier
