lyrics

we loved him so Daddy was never mean
doing his best moving us town to town
littlest one wondering why he hardly stuck around

gone off to places we couldn't see
fighting wars we didn't want to believe
all the things he couldn't say
about overseas and faraway
overseas and faraway

pat on the head sent you off to bed
mamma wondering was this the man she wed
scars on his body blood on his hands
this was how you made a man

gone off to places we couldn't see
came back we didn't know how to be
all the things he couldn't say
about overseas and faraway
overseas and faraway

you can say he was wrong
but he never meant bad
said he was sorry
can't you tell he's sad
some stories can't be unread
some pictures never gonna leave your head

gone off to places we couldn't see
fighting wars we didn't want to believe
all the things he couldn't say
about overseas and faraway
overseas and faraway
