Lyrics

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
