Not a bad song and very topical. A lot of people might like it and identify with it. I think it was wise of you to not take a position politically and just sang of you or the soldier just wanting to get home. I could see someone taking this one. Good job Nick.

Well I have a dream one right now I cant touch
my hands full of sand clothes covered in dust
I work really hard trying to pass all the time
but its getting hard with Nashville on my mind
well playing my music is my future plan but first I have to get out of Afghanistan

well I've been hoping and praying and fighting this fight to get back home soon to my kids and my wife
I got big dreams I'm building but right now with paper and pen
well playing this guitar is my future plan
but first i have to get out of Afghanistan

Life back home love songs run through my mind as I lay in my rack wide awake late at night
the bright lights and big crowds is what I dream of
to pick up my guitar and lay down this gun
so I'm steady writing all these songs in my head just waiting to get on out of Afghanistan

well I've been hoping and praying and fighting this fight to get back home soon to my kids and my wife
I got big dreams I'm building but right now with paper and pen
yeah i keep holding on

write a song for my buddies who ain't as lucky as i am but first I have to get out of Afghanistan

well I've been hoping and praying and fighting this fight to get back home soon to my kids and my wife
I got big dreams I'm building but right now with paper and pen
now don't get me wrong yeah I love what I do
and I'll lay it all down for the red white and blue
and my only hope is I will be coming home as soon as I can
from Afghanistan
I'll be coming home, from Afghanistan yeah I'll be coming home
