I want to come home

I want to come home to family and friends
I have done my job and I want it to end
My duty is finished for this I do know
I ask not for a parade or to be a hero

I want to come home to the land of the free
to my mother and father and my family
This war needs to end as everyone can see
I've done my time so let me go free

I know everyone thinks a soldier is cool
you don't really know all that we do
You give up your life and sign your name
You end up a number in a political game
