A Box of Ashes and A Dog Tag

You can't bring him back
keep telling myself that
You can't bring him back
He's gone, He's dead now

A mother's wish
has never come to this
You had to go and take him away
And now he's not here today

If I am paying for a debt
then why doesn't this price seem met
If my sins laid upon him
You deserve what you get
Take me instead

Chorus:
I want him back
Oh
I want him back
Oh

But all you can have is that
box of ashes and a dog tag

Let me just lay here for a while by his side
But the tears can't stop running down my cheeks
Maybe if I stay here long enough
He will wake from his sleep

But no
He's so cold
But my anger is getting hotter
And my tears are staining
No, you can't replace him

Chorus:
I want him back
Oh
I want him back
Oh

But all you can have is that
box of ashes and a dog tag

Deny, Deny
Tonight I will not think
This is just a dream
A nightmare that just won't cease
My Baby and I will wake up to a better time
When i still wasn't
Happy
Will I ever be satisfied?
I held the love of my life
Now I hold him in a different way
Karma just seems so unfair to me

Chorus:
I want him back
Oh
I want him back
Oh

But all you can have is that
box of ashes and a dog tag


Once his
Now hung around your neck
Look at it and push the pain away

When it jingles, I still think I can hear him
But then I remember
He's not here
