Warrior-Healer: Inside A Song By Air Force Veteran Blair Morin and James House


             Blair Morin and James House

I remember seeing a lot of good in people

Back when I was a younger man

But I went to war looked into the face of evil

Change forever who I am

I did my duty, I was unapologetic

Swore I’d be there when a brother in need

That's whet you do when you’re a warrior medic

Give comfort and aid no matter what you believe


But somewhere between then and now

I lost myself


Oh oh oh healer - oh oh oh warrior

Oh oh oh healer - oh oh oh warrior


My wife asks me why am I so angry

My kids ask me why am I so scared

They see it but I don’t burden them

Cause I’m still fighting that war over there


But somewhere between then and now

I got lost myself


Oh oh oh healer - oh oh oh warrior

Oh oh oh healer - oh oh oh warrior


I haven’t given up on my brothers

They haven’t given up on me

Looking back pushes me forward

Fighting to feel the hope that I thought I’d never see


Oh oh oh healer - oh oh oh warrior

Oh oh oh healer - oh oh oh warrior
