A 1980’s Bruce Springsteen Song

HOMETOWN WARS

We fought all our battles so long ago
out on the fields of play ,
one more home run to win
one more heroic hit and a garlanded presentation to come ,
But that was all before My Lai
that was all before we got called up ,
called up to fight all our battles
on someone else’s field ;
and we knew in our hearts
there’d never be a lucky home run
no garlanded presentation to come ,
That was all after My Lai
all after we got called up
and left behind all our memories
of those battles we fought
so long ago on the fields of play ;
With just one more home run to win ,
one more heroic hit
and a garlanded presentation to come.

Mid-1980’s Scorpions’ Rock Ballad

We lost our way so long ago ,

and never found our way back ,

though we kept searching

and searching and searching

and we’re searching still ;

For that way back to those days ,

with their blue sky mornings

and golden sunsets ;

which we somehow have lost

on our way to a future

that betrayed us ,

left our dreams dying dying

dying to return once again ,

to those days we lost forever

with their blue sky mornings

and golden sunsets ,

which we can no longer see

with our blind eyes.
