This song is by Mark Heard and appears on the compilation album High Noon (1993) and on the compilation album Hammers And Nails (2003).

I was a soldier, came home in tatters,
I won the battles, but lost the war,
Now that I'm older, it doesn't matter,
Some lives are stolen, I'm just one more.

No, don't ask me what I miss,
Nobody likes to kiss and speak of failure,
No, don't ask me what I've lost,
You know I like to talk, and I might tell you.

I was a laugher, I was a lover,
I was another, in other times,
Rain in my rafters is all you'll discover,
You needn't bother to read my mind.

No, don't ask me what I miss,
Nobody likes to kiss and speak of failure,
No, don't ask me what I've lost,
You know I like to talk, and I might tell you.

No, don't ask me what I've lost,
No, don't ask me what I've lost.

I have this nightmare of glowing embers,
Safe by the fireplace when I was five,
And, in the night air, it makes me tremble,
I still remember what love is like.

No, don't ask me what I miss,
Nobody likes to kiss and speak of failure,
No, don't ask me what I've lost,
You know I like to talk, and I might tell you,

I might tell you,
I might tell.
