08 Bittersweet
As I watch our heroes come home
Memories of my own
Stir inside me once again
No one welcomed us back then
 Bittersweet Bittersweet
I'm proud of those that serve today
I stand beside them in my own way
But the memories make me feel
Something so deep something so real
Bittersweet Bittersweet
We pledged allegiance
We went along
But something back there went wrong 
We gave you blood, 
We gave you lives
We came home
You criticized
Bittersweet Bittersweet
I am strong and still standing here
I'm living proof that you can live with fear
It's time we welcome each one home
Cause no one should ever feel that alone
Many arms are open as our heroes return
It's nice to know a country can learn
