Veterans Day

 

It was a cool day in November with an undecided sun

And the sharp scent of burning leaves

Her auburn hair glowed like a halo on a harlot

And her sweater tugged at his heart’s sleeve

There was something familiar about all this

As he savored the taste of that first warm kiss

 

It was Veterans Day, he’s been there before

It was Veterans Day, still bleeding from the last war

But she looked sweet as a candy apple

And his tongue wouldn’t have it any other way

Hooray for Veterans Day

 

There’s a hole in my heart where the arrow went through

On it’s way to another woman

There’s a ring on my finger where I have been branded

And stranded with empty hands

But wounds will heal in the cool dry fall

And a purple heart is better than no heart at all

 

It was Veterans Day, I've been there before

It was Veterans Day, still bleeding from the last war

But he looked sweet as a candy apple

And my tongue wouldn’t have it any other way

Hooray for Veterans Day

 

All is fair in love and war as far as I’m concerned

Hearts and nations rise and fall and never, ever learn
