Lyrics

BITTERSWEET

As I watch our heroes come home

Memories of my own

Stir inside me once again

No one welcomed us back then

 Bittersweet Bittersweet

 

I'm proud of those that serve today

I stand beside them in my own way

But the memories make me feel

Something so deep something so real

Bittersweet Bittersweet

 

We pledged allegiance

We went along

But something back there went wrong 

We gave you blood, 

We gave you lives

We came home

You criticized

Bittersweet Bittersweet

 

I am strong and still standing here

I'm living proof that you can live with fear

It's time we welcome each one home

Cause no one should ever feel that alone

Bittersweet

 

Many arms are open as our heroes return

It's nice to know a country can learn
