You live in letters sent with shaky hands and circumstances.
I bet you never thought your life could turn so tragic.
A never ending summer in the sand is not vacation.
I swear I saw my life flash before my eyes, as the waves came crashing down.
I saw reflections of your face up in the sky, as the shots fired before you heard a sound.
What's it feel like to be alone?
The one you love is across the ocean.
You'll never know if he's coming home.
The firefight dear, it isn't over.
You spend your nights drinking alone, waiting for phone calls.
I bet you never thought your life could seem so long.
I'd walk the ocean floor so I could bring you home.
Sometimes life really isn't fair. And maybe I wished you far, far from here.
But all I ever wanted was for you to care.
All I ever wanted was to meet you there.
