Lyrics

No One Will Ever Know

At twenty-one, he signed up for that war
Four years in, he did three tours
Came home, he just, could not fit in
Pushed away the family, and his friends
Verse
I once saw him, he was standing there by the road
Had a cardboard Sign, tattered, dirty clothes
Said I'm homeless, could someone, please help me
I'm a veteran, I fought to keep you free
Chorus
No one will ever know, the pain he feels inside
No one will ever know, the secrets that he hides
Twenty vets a day, take their lives away
The reason why, - no one will ever know
Lead
Verse
I got a friend, you know, he fought in Vietnam
Man nothing was the same when he came home
Agent orange, came home with him too
now he trembles and shakes the whole day through
Chorus
No one will ever know, the pain he feels inside
No one will ever know, the sacrifice he made
Twenty vets a day, take their lives away
The reason why, no one will ever know
Twenty vets today, will take their lives away
The reason why, no one will ever know

I see this song is one of the latest TV show like homeland, Johnny Cash would be proud!
