The Locket Lyrics

Back in '41 you met a brown-eyed boy who called you pretty
He'd walk everyday a couple miles out of his way to hold your hand
and keep you company.
Your mama said "don't call it love at 14"
But sitting on that front porch swing
He gave you his picture in a locket that you wore around your neck
Left it right beside your heart so you would not forget
The way it felt when he held your hand.
And you swore that you would never take it off
And the butterflies you felt said it all-
You were falling with a boy inside your locket.
Back in '43 your brown-eyed boy went over seas and had to leave
town for a little while.
He swore he'd marry you as soon as the war was through, you
would be his wife. Standing in the pouring rain
You cried as you watched him ride away,
But everyday
You had his picture in a locket that you wore around your neck.
Left it right beside your heart so you would not forget
The way his kiss tasted on your lips.
And everyday felt like a lifetime with him gone
And you prayed that God would bring him safely home
'Cause you made a promise to the boy inside your locket.
Oh, 60 years you two had together and he's been gone for a couple
And it breaks my heart to see you struggle to remember,
And you've been writina your memories down
And I stopped by today to read a couple pages
Grandma, you sure look pretty.
And you smile that smile, the one I haven't seen in quite a while
And you said to me "I want you to keep
His picture in a locket that I wore around my neck.
The one I left beside my heart so I would not forget
The greatest love and the greatest man I've ever known.
But it's getting time for me to head on home
She said, that brown eyed boy is waiting and I don't wanna keep
him long
Heaven is calling," and she said, "my heart is longing
For the boy inside your locket"

This means that even though someone is gone, they are there. Your love for them and their love for you will only leave if you let it go.
