"Prisoner of War" as written by and David Wilcox....
I respect what you can do
But I'd say the same about a gun
Depends which side of you they see
Some feel safe and some will run

There's so much fight you keep in store
Though in all of life, you've won your wars
And still you let yourself forget
As if it's thirty years before

Prisoner of war, prisoner of war
Though you're not held on foreign soil anymore
Bring 'em home, Jack, bring 'em home, Jack
Bring home both the mighty soldier and the boy

Something you just can't believe
The many strengths you could receive
If you could just call down your guard
Just let those forces leave

Prisoner of war, prisoner of war
Though you're not held on foreign soil anymore
Bring 'em home, Jack, bring 'em home, Jack
Bring home both the mighty soldier and the boy

And you're so strong, and that's your crutch
To keep alone and out of touch
To try to keep your heart from line of fire

So it's still trapped inside that war
Like there's a soldier at the door
It's time you told that soldier to retire
And bring 'em home

Prisoner of war, prisoner of war
Though you're not held on foreign soil anymore
Bring 'em home, Jack, bring 'em home, Jack
Bring home both the mighty soldier and the boy
