​Quiet On The Front

This song is by Company Of Thieves and appears on the album Ordinary Riches (2009).

I can't hold a glass of wine yet
But they think its fine to have me hold a gun
Kill a man and kill his son
Fell straight down in the yard
When Uncle pulled his card
And sent him off alone
Fighting blind in dark

The wheels just keep on turning
The men just keep on marching in
I swear to God if you don't get that letter
I'll kill myself before they kill me on the line
In the end the heart divides
In the pictures we'll reside
With our memories, we all fade in time, in time

Mother sweeps at night the porch
Squints hardly to discover baby coming home
But of course she doesn't know when
Or how he will get there, surely needing repair
Worries to the bone that's weaker as

The wheels just keep on turning
The men just keep on marching in
I swear to God if you don't get that letter
I will kill myself before they kill me on the line
In the end the heart divides
In the pictures we'll reside
With our memories, we all fade in time, in time

Ma'am, we've found he's gone
With sincere regret
Ma'am, we've found he's gone
With sincere regret, oh oh oh

In the end the heart divides
In the pictures we'll reside
With our memories, we all fade in time
With our memories, we all fade in time, in time
With our memories, we all fade in time, in time
With our memories, we all fade in time, in time
With our memories, we all fade in time, in time
