When you tried to grow up
There were things to keep you down
So you headed to the army with no thoughts of war
Married your high school sweetheart
Filled your head with life and love

But days changed fast
You can’t begin to understand
The only life you have can be lost
From your family and friends
Their days to be ruined for the rest of their lives

Did you really think
You won’t be around?
Or will you be one of the lucky ones?
You always land on your feet
And everything you touch turns to gold


You always land on your feet
You always land on your feet

Back home on your street
Flags are waving high
The children are running
With no thoughts of war
Everything they touch turns to gold
