Bombs Above

  • All my life I've played a part
    In the bombs above the ones you love
    I'm taking a moment to apologize
    I should have done more to stop the war
    So I'm sorry

    I leave behind a trail of songs
    From the darkest gloom to the brightest sun
    I've lost my way but it's hard to say
    What I've been through should matter to you

    A man so drunk he could hardly stand
    Told me once holding my hand
    Suffering is the same for everyone
    He was right but I was wrong to agree

    Ah, ah, ah, ah Writer/s: Jeffrey Scot Tweedy
