​Soldier's Wife

This song is by John Parr and appears on the album The Mission (2012).

Pack your bags
Pack your boots
Throw my heart in
With the rest of you

Lying here
Pretending I'm asleep
You're so quiet
Tryin' not to wake me

Close the door
So I can finally weep

Long after you've gone
My love's still strong
You'll always be there
Time slowly drifts by
Lonely am I
Just a soldier's wife

I read your letters
To the kids
I left out
Our secret bits

Lying here in the dark
In your old shirt
While we're apart
The smell of you
Calms this aching heart

Long after you've gone
My love's still strong
You'll always be there
Time slowly drifts by
Lonely am I
Just a soldier's wife
