If You Could See Us Now


Great Grandpa, what was it like
To be in the middle of the world's fire fight?
Where you scared when the Germans came marching your way?
When you were shot did it hurt for more than just a day?
The tanks, the guns, the bombs all around.
While you were there, was there any other sound?
"This world's gone crazy. You know just how."
Is what you'd say if you could see us now

Grandpa, the things that you went through
Fighting for a country that did not love you.
You suffered fear both night and day
Just to come home and hear people say.
"It's all your fault we lost this war."
But they didn't know what was worth fighting for.
For the war had a purpose, though we didn't know how.
Oh, the things you'd say if you could see us now.
