Missing the War

Original Artist: Ben Folds

All is quiet,
His tired eyes see figures jotted down,
And clothes all strewn around the bedroom floor.

Now nothing's adding up and nothing's making sense,
She's sleeping like a baby,
she doesn't know he wasn't meant for this.

I'm missing the war,
I'm missing the war all night.
Missing the war,
I'm missing the war.

He drove home again,
Pissed and beaten,
It's really no big deal,
It happens all the time,
It's no big deal.

I'm missing the war,
I'm missing the war all night,
Missing the war,
I'm missing the war,
'Til beams of sunlight hit me in the morning.

So much time so little to say.

Time may fly and dreams may die,
The shaking voice that tells him go,
Still thinks he might,
He knows he won't.

I'm missing the war,
I'm missing the war all night,
Missing the war,
I'm missing the war,
Missing the war,
Missing the war.
