History, you say

History, you say
But you don't mean the war that tore the world apart
Not this war
(Not this world)
History, you say
Looking out at the past
The broken soldier who learned to love
The blonde girl with the stars in her eyes
(The girl who made him better)
Remembering the Captain, the Idiot, the Day Everyone Lived
History, you say
But [you] don't [mean] the war that tore the [your world] apart
