Pack your bags
Walk down the path
You turn around
Sneak a final look back

Smile at me
I smile back
I'm going weak
Feels like a heart attack

Be sure to check that note
In your pocket
While I stare at your smiling face
Tucked away in my locket

Soldier Love
You hurry on home
Soldier Love
I want you to know
That I love you
That I need you
That I'll always wait for you
Please hurry back before I come undone
Soldier Love

A telegram
Full of lies
Tell myself that
To get some sleep at nigh

Say you're here
You never went there
I can close my eyes
I'm not scared

I can't forget that telegram
In the mailbox
Wish it could be like letters in the sand
But I can't forget

Soldier Love
You hurry on home
Soldier Love
I want you to know
That I love you
That I need you
That I'll always wait for you
Please hurry back before I come undone
Soldier Love

Waiting by our painted front door
To hear your footsteps on our front porch
But nothing comes, it never does
Hurry please, everything is coming undone

Soldier Love
Please come on home
Soldier Love
I just want you to know
That I love you
That I need you
That I keep on praying for you
Hurry back, it's coming undone

Soldier Love
You hurry on home
Soldier Love
I want you to know
That I love you
That I need you
That I'll always wait for you
Please hurry back before I come undone
Soldier Love

There's a sound
I catch a breath
Turn around
And you're back

Alive and well
All unharmed
I'm undone
I fall into your arms
Soldier Love
