I can hear that mission bell ring
Across the Western sky
I’ve been here nearly one week
It’s been two since you’ve died

And at the wheel is my old man
Someone I don’t know at all
Surely he could us a friend right now
If only we would talk

You were our common thread
Through all the times of war
The nurse with the kindly heart
Stitching enemy wounds no matter
What we were fighting for

Well I have been away so long
Found running was just as wrong
And now we’ve all missed out
On what family is all about

Driving back from Fields of Rest
Where we laid you in your grave
I am feeling sorry and sad
For the way that we behaved


from The High Risk Years, released December 1, 2010
