Dear Wife Lyrics

No my darling have no fear
I'll see you by and by
I trust in my commander
And my brothers in arms
The chaplain reassures us
That God is on our side
And I will write you every day
I will keep you informed

Dear Wife
I can feel you arms about my neck
Life like
The image of you crying at the gate
Dear Wife
Your photo is a shield over my heart
My Life
Depends on the memory of your face

We landed on the shore today
No enemy in sight
We are strong and confident
Our training is complete
We set up camp
And cleaned our guns
And sang away the night
And yours by far the lovliest
Of all the pictures seen

I can barely write today
How things have gone awry
A man who was a friend to me
Is dead and many more
I had to do a dreadful thing
To make it back alive
Why am I the only one
To send back into war?

So tell me dear
The color of your eyes
I cannot remember
The glimmer of your hair
You were a guiding light
Emblazoned on my mind
But death had led me far away
And I don't seem to care

Dear God I am betrayed today
My brothers are insane
Our leaders have abandoned us
And turned us loose to kill
They behave like animals
And I behave the same
Why should I try to survive
When I don't have the will?

Dear Wife
The tempo of my death is beating down
Why Hide?
Relief awaits me, I cannot escape
Dear Wife
Your photo is a dead thing to me now
My Life
Is wasted like the memory of your face
