UnbrokenBon JoviI was born to be of serviceCamp Lejeune just felt like homeI had honor, I found purposeSir, yes, sirThat's what I knowThey sent us to a place I never heard of weeks beforeWhen you're nineteen, it ain't hard to sleepIn the desert on God's floorClose your eyes, stop counting sheepYou hear them bootcamp anymoreWe were taught to shoot our riflesThen in one, then side by sideThought we'd be made as liberatorsIn a thousand year old fightI got this painful ringing in my earFrom an IED last nightBut no lead light humvee war machine, could save my sergeants lifeThree more soldiers, six civiliansNeed these words to come out rightGod of mercy, God of lightSeek your children from this lifeHere these words, this humble pleaFor I have seen the sufferingAnd with this prayer I'm hopingThat we, can be unbrokenIt's 18 months now, I've been statesideWith this medal on my chestBut there are things I can't rememberAnd there are things I won't forgetI lie awake at night with dreams of devils shouldn't seeI wanna scream, but I can't breatheAnd Christ, I am sweating through these sheetsWhere's my brothers? Where's my country?Where's my how things used to be?God of mercy, God of lightSeek your children from this lifeHere these words, this humble pleaFor I have seen the sufferingAnd with this prayer I'm hopingThat we, can be unbrokenMy service dogs done more for meThen the medication wouldThere ain't no angel that is coming to save meBut even if they couldToday, 22, would die from suicideJust like yesterday, they're goneI live my life for each tomorrowSo their memories will live onOnce we were boys, and we were strangersNow we're brothers and we're menSomeday you'll ask me, was it worth it to be of service in the end?Well, the blessing, and the curses, yeah, I'd do it all againWhoa-ohWhoa-ohWhoa-ohWhoa-ohWhoa-ohWhoa-oh (Whoa)Source: MusixmatchSongwriters: Jon Bon JoviUnbroken lyrics © Bon Jovi Publishing, Universal Music Publishing Int.
