lyrics

Follow the old neighbourhood roads
Grey with wind-blasted dew
Pass by the house you knew so well,
It stares back at you
Windows dark and empty,
Curtains closed;
Letting us pass.

The beetle-black of the parade
Indicates
That someone great is gone.
I haven’t seen my father cry
Since I was very young,
In his words: “He was a true gentleman.”
A poppy driven into the wood
Of the casket
Breaks him through.

A flower falls from the bouquet
And blows to my feet
I place it back on the lid.
A thousand salutes could never mark
What you did
A thousand salutes could never mark
What you did.

Why bring home the war?
This is your parade.
Why bring home the war?
This is my goodbye.
