Jonny's War

from Shivelight by Mishaped Pearls



Jonny came home from his war today
His war today his war today
He felt so mad he felt so mad
But he wouldn't tell a soul he hurt so bad

Jonny was a man who loved his wife
He loved his child he loved his life
But the pain inside was far too strong
Far too strong to carry on

He looked so well you couldn't tell
His mind became a living hell
A battle that could not be won
And deep inside he felt so numb

Oh Jonny
Oh Jonny's war
Oh Jonny
Oh Jonny's war

Jonny came from his work today
His work today oh what a day
He was so fine yesterday
Yesterday was a really good day

Suffering is not so clear
Not so clear not so clear
It's not the same as feeling down
As feeling down doesn't stick around

Oh Jonny
Oh Jonny's war
Oh Jonny
Oh Jonny's war

Oh Jonny
Oh Jonny's war
Oh Jonny
Oh Jonny's war
