Returned Hero

lyrics

When I first signed on, you should have seen me.
Every man walking wanted to be me.
Giggles and sighs were heard as I walked by.
Curtains moved when I passed under streetlights.
Since my return, they look in a different way.

I recall shop girls straining to see me walking in the rain.
Now my romantic bearing ain’t quite the same

Longing once made them peer over hedges,
now their eyes snag on all my rough edges.
It was the uniform that once made me,
now it's the thing that roundly betrays me.
Since my return, they look in a different way.

I recall shop girls straining to see me marching in the rain.
Now my heroic bearing ain’t quite the same.
