lyrics

So, can you tell me of your time in the war
What you saw?
Half-way around the world, you where there
What you saw?
He said "I don’t have time for those days again
I don’t need to go back there anymore"
But he shared with me a memory
That in my mind I still can see
As vivd as the day I was told

I traded cigarettes for chocolate bars
And spent the nights under the stars
Dreaming of you oh so far away
I thought of you each day and night
It kept me strong throughout the fight
And I thought about coming home some day
There were times I feared for my life
And other times things were so right
But I think my greatest memory
Is the time I joined a friend and we
Serenaded sweet Italian girls

But what of the adventures in the war
What about them?
You were just like brothers
You were there
What about them?
Oh I don't need to know those days again
They're not important any more
But I'll share with you a memory
That in my mind I still can see
When I was twenty-nine years old

Lovely ladies, won't you come out to play?
A tiny respite for a day
A little special, precious memory
That we can take home some day

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
