​Gone To Bed At 21

This song is by Miracle Legion and appears on the album Portrait of a Damaged Family (1996).

Come closer... man I know you
Can't you tell me... just what you're goin' through
I take my medals... and go back in time
My body's movin'...but I... I think I fried my mind

I joined the Army just to please her
Put my ideas in the freezers
My love letters in the trunk
Gone to bed at 21

Safe and warm here, lyin' in your feather bed
Cannonballs are flyin' overhead
Virgin Mary... a swingin' from her chain
Put a noose around my neck...'cause here they come again

I joined the Army just to please her
Put my ideas in the freezers
My love letters in the trunk
Gone to bed at 21

I joined the Army just to please her
Put my ideas in the freezers
My love letters in the trunk
Gone to bed at 21

Made a big mistake... tryin' to think ahead
Better alive and chicken... than bein' shipped home dead
I guess I'll live on... in her memories
'Cause I see angels and devils... wavin' down at me

I joined the Army just to please her
Put my ideas in the freezers
My love letters in the trunk
Gone to bed at 21

Gone to bed at 21
Gone to bed at 21
Gone to bed at 21
Gone to bed at 21

(Gone to bed at 21) I joined the Army just to please her
(Gone to bed at 21) Put my ideas in the freezers
(Gone to bed at 21) My love letters in the trunk
Gone to bed at 21

Gone to bed at 21
