The War is Over

Empty Journal

Yours for a Year

The War is Over


They’re pitting Koran against Bible at the Big Tent TV throwdown show tonight.
You hear one man shouting "Libel!", but the highball tribal holy roller swears he’s right.
And by his side stands his pretty wife - and all I really know about his life
Is that it can’t be that much different from my own.

But for you and me, the war is over
There’s nothing left for me to hide
You can look straight through me, woman, and see clear to the other side

That soldier is a model citizen, just witness him as he drives the business tank.
And when he gets home to his wife and children, he’s still in uniform and rank.
The story of a country is in a single home.
When an American man wonders why he’s been left alone
He might consider that his woman was no different from his enemy’s own.

But for you and me, the war is over – there’s nothing left for me to hide
You can look straight through me, sugar, and see clear to the other side

All my cruelty just was not cool to me
And over time I changed, it will never be the same
Oh baby, open up to me, it's so much different now I know

Because for you and me the war is over – with nothing left for us to hide
Yes, you can look straight through me, honey, clear to the other side
