The Ballad of the Unknown Hero

Custom User Avatar
Standing tall and proud, so far from home
Was it an adventure you wanted to find?
Fighting a battle that isn't your own
Loved ones and family nagging at your mind

You may be a hero, an enemy to some
There's no turning back now, your fight has just begun

Your ears are ringing, your mind racing
Battle moves on, you've got courage of a lion
Is this the adventure you thought that you'd be facing?
Seems more real now than in Saving Private Ryan

You may be a hero, an enemy to some
There's no turning back now, your fight has just begun

Just as one of your friends is falling
The heavens open up, rain drenching this strange place
And down to you they seem to be calling
Gone for a country that's never even seen your face

You may be a hero, an enemy to some
You're going home now soldier, your fight is finally done
