The Letter

Story Behind The Song

I was deployed to Afghanistan with the Army shortly after 9-11. I wanted to write a song that meant something, tired of hearing songs about War by people who've never been there, so I did.

Song Length 4:37 Genre Rock - Easy Listening
Tempo Slow (71 - 90) Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Language English Era 2000 and later


So early in the morning
And I'm thinking about you
Didn't get to sleep til late last night
Some boys didn't make it back
Got in a little fight
So I thought I'd write you tonight

Baby I love you
And I miss you so much
Kiss the kids and tuck them in tonight
I want you to know that I'm doing just fine
Though it's not safe here all the time
The men that I fight with
The men I might die with
Well they're keeping me safe tonight
So thousands of miles keeps us so far apart
But tonight
You are on my mind

Sometimes I get so scared
I might even cry
That's when I hold your picture tight
When I get back, baby we'll make things right
Read these words I wrote tonight...
