That man I shot, He was trying to kill me
He was trying to kill me He was trying to kill me
That man I shot I didnt know him
I was just doing my job, maybe so was he

That man I shot, I was in his homeland
I was there to help him but he didnt want me there
I did not hate him, I still dont hate him
He was trying to kill me and I had to take him down

That man I shot, I still can see him
When I should be sleeping, tossing and turning
Hes looking at me, eyes looking through me
Break out in cold sweats when I see him standing there

That man I shot, shot not in anger
Theres no denying it was in self-defense
But when I close my eyes, I still can see him
I feel his last breath in the calm dead of night

That man I shot, He was trying to kill me
He was trying to kill me, He was trying to kill me
Sometimes I wonder if I should be there?
I hold my little ones until he disappears

I hold my little ones until he disappears
I hold my little ones until we disappear
And Im not crazy or at least I never was
But theres this big thing that cant get rid of

That man I shot did he have little ones
That he was so proud of that he wont see grow up?
Was walking down his street, maybe I was in his yard
Was trying to do good I just dont understand
