Away (A Soldier’s Anthem)

Lyrics

Don’t go away
She said to me yesterday
As I was packing up to go
Write you everyday
She promised me
As I walked through that door
Oh, baby, stay
She cried out
Who needs the war? Who needs the war?

But there’s a yearning in my heart tonight
And I can’t breathe and I can’t fight
Cause I’m burning deep inside to make it home

So, Father, show me the way
Cause I’m afraid to face today
Even though yesterday is gone, gone, gone
Well, there’s got to be a way
To get up and face today
I’m just so scared to think that
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
Away

So I’ll retire the tracks I’ve laid
Admire the mess I’ve made
To get this far
Discover the way for me to say
Forever is not so far
So far away
To keep me apart from you

So if I don’t make it home tonight
Don’t cry for me — I’ll be alright
You know I’m never going down
Without a fight

So, Father, show me the way
Cause I’m afraid to face today
Even though yesterday is gone, gone, gone
Well, there’s got to be a way
To get up and face today
I’m just so scared to think that
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
Away

Gone away
Gone away
So go all the way today
Go all the way today
Cause I love you
You know I love you
But I can’t stay
I love you
I love you but I can’t stay… away
