The Confrontation Lyrics

    We could not find her anywhere
    Honey, what's wrong?

    Kim was here-
    The one who had to tell her was me

    Oh, my god, it's my fault

    I knew we were gone too long!

    No, I think it's exactly what I had to see
    There are some things you left out
    all right
    She wants her husband to go to her
    place tonight

    That's not how things were, I just
    promised her

    It's the same to her

    Don't explaain
    There's nothing you can say
    It's like she went insane
    She tried to give away
    her own child

    She wants her son to be an American boy

    Don't you see, she still thinks
    she's married to you
    You must tell her she's not
    she must hear it from you
    'course it only depends if it's true

    Please don't doubt me, Ellen
    You're my wife
    Lots of guys came back
    and had no life
    I had you

    You can say what you want,
    but she's borne you a son
    In your nightmares
    the name that you shouted was hers
    You've been with me two years and not shared things
    you've done
    Don't hold back
    Let me see
    Is it her now
    or me?

    Let me tell you the way it was
    Back when I was a different man
    Back when I didn't have a clue who I am
    The feelings locked behind a dam
    That kept me there in Vietnam

    There in the shambles of a war
    I found what I was looking for
    Saigon was crazed, but she was real
    And for one moment I could feel

    I saw a world I never knew
    And through her eyes I suffered, too
    In spite of all the things that were
    I started to believe in her

    So I wanted to save her, protect her,
    Christ I'm American
    How could I fail to do good
    All I made was a mess, just like everyone else,
    In a place full of mystery
    That I never once understood
    I wanted back a world I knew
    The story of my life began again-with you

    Ellen & Chris
    It's all right now Oh Ellen, I should have told you
    I'm with you
    We'll get through this Will you ever, ever trust me again?
    We'll pull through
    All I want All I have
    In my life In my life now
    is you is you
