The Scars of Our War

© 2021 CS Taber

I can feel your ghost come nearer

I can see your face in the mirror

I don't know if love can reach from the grave

I can hear your heart beat quicker

A chill air makes the candle flicker

A part of me loves you, but I already gave

 

I carry the guilt of the living

And you carry three times more

I bear the weight of forgiving

And you bear the scars of our war

 

You were gone and I was alone

My momma died and the children had grown

I found comfort in the arms of another lonely fool

I knot my tie, I'm getting ready

We're gonna throw our own confetti

And here you are proving ghosts can still be cruel

 

I carry the guilt of the living

And you carry three times more

I bear the weight of forgiving

And you bear the scars of our war

 

I carry the guilt of the living

And you carry three times more

I bear the weight of forgiving

And you bear the scars of our war
