Hi I'm James W, A musician/singer for a cause: supporting and raising awareness for our Military Veterans and First Responders who suffer PTSD through my songs. A good portion of royalties are donated towards organisations to aid in their PTSD support programs. I'm very passionate about music and believe it's a great way of reaching out to people. I work with songwriter Teressa Dykes and look forward to what's ahead of us. I'm now on facebook: https://m.facebook.com/OfficialJamesW/about/?ref=page_internal&mt_nav=0 Hope to see you there! The more support out there for our heroes, the better!

WHEN THE BADGE COMES OFF:


Verse1:
Dressed in blue,
Work hat on tight,
Embrace the book,
As the words ignite,
Saving souls,
Sacrifice own light,
Suppressed pain,
Hidden out of sight.

Verse 2:
First on the scene,
Taught not to feel,
A heart of glass,
Shielding badge of steel,
When the badge comes off,
Home feels surreal,
Exposed memories,
Of ones ordeal.

Chorus:
How can I let go today,
When yesterday's hauntings replace,
Watching my loved ones cry,
With a knot in my neck to hide,
Take all the guilt away,
For the book’s no longer the same,
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.

Verse 3:
Kiss their cheeks,
Before sunrise,
Flashing blue then red,
As eyes go blind,
Not who it was,
That took my surprise,
It's what they did,
To a child like mine.

Chorus:
How can I let go today,
When yesterday's hauntings replace,
Watching my loved ones cry,
With a knot in my neck to hide,
Take all the guilt away,
For the book’s no longer the same,
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.

Chorus:
Oh how can I let go today,
When yesterday's hauntings replace,
Watching my loved ones cry,
With a knot in my neck to hide,
Take all the guilt away,
For the book’s no longer the same,
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.

Finish:
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.
