War is never over

War is never over 

Thought the treaties may be signed 
The memories of the battles 
Are forever in our minds 

War is never over 
So when you welcome heroes home 
Remember in their minds they hold 
Memories known to them alone 

War is never over 
Nam veterans know this well 
Now other wars bring memories back 
Of their own eternal hell 

War is never over 
For I knew world war two 
And I’ll not forget the battles 
Or the nightmares that ensue 

War is never over 
Those left home to wait know this 
For many still are waiting 
It was their farewell kiss 

War is never over 
Though we win the victory 
Still in our minds the battles 
 No freedom is not free!
