Whatever for

Verse
There’s a church with a cross on top of the hill.
It’s a symbol for all to see.
A reminder to him of what he’s become.
A part of who he used to be.
There’s a girl he promised his undying love
Still waiting for him to come home.
She’s wondering that if or when he comes back
Will he be the man she’s known.
Chorus
The thunder reminds him of the big guns.
The way they shook the ground.
The lighting, the flashing of bursting bombs
Men dying all around.
He answered the call he went off to war.
She said, whatever for.
He survived a year and a half in hell.
He asks himself what for.
Verse
There’s a girl with a cross and she’s kneeling down.
She’s saying a prayer for her man.
She’s wondering about the letters he wrote.
How he copes with the blood on his hands.
There’s a field with a cross on the top of the hill
For a brother he lost in war.
He lost a friend, his lover, perhaps his soul
And he ponders whatever for.
Chorus
The thunder reminds him of the big guns.
The way they shook the ground.
The lighting, the flashing of bursting bombs
Men dying all around.
He answered the call he went off to war.
She said, whatever for.
He survived a year and a half in hell.
He asks himself what for.
Bridge
A purple heart, a silver star.
A hero’s home from war.
He doesn’t talk about it
My God, whatever for.

He answered the call, his faith would not waver
Defending the life that he’d known
Surviving that hell on blood sweat and prayer
A different man made it back home
