Lyrics

Your duffel bag's all neatly packed
Promise me this won't defeat you
My letters' are perfumed and stamped
I hope they get there first to greet you

When your plane tears down that dusty road
Toward that desert far away
Just hang on to my love for you
And let God light the way

I'm Dreading Your Departure
Today is really here
Your orders have arrived with my worst fear

I'm Dreading Your Departure
But I'll hold you in my prayers
Just think of me and know that I am there
Just think of me and know that I am there

Just yesterday we were two kids
Kissing on that old blue sofa
College funds seemed worth the risk, and
You were proud to be a soldier

Now I see from where we stood
With malls and parks and ferris wheels
We just never understood
That guns and bombs were real

Oh I'm Dreading Your Departure
Life is so unsure
I can't believe you're heading off to war

I'm Dreading Your Departure
But I'll hold you in my prayers
Just think of me and know that I am there
Just think of me and know that I am there

They'll be here by noon, how I wish that you could take me
Please come back here soon, baby, come back to me, safely

I'm Dreading Your Departure
Life is so unsure
I can't believe they're sending you to war

I'm Dreading Your Departure
But I'll hold you in my prayers
Just think of me and know that I am there
Just think of me and know that I am there

This song is great. You really sold the story. What a great theme song for all VET'S

Very beautiful song; Great voice, lyrics, instrumental & recording.
