Song Title: Letter Home Style: Alt

Verse 1
Put my pen to the page… I don’t often get the time… Builds such guilt inside… But I know you remain mine… And I know it hurts you too… Everyday… But there’s nothing we can do.
Instrumental……………………………….Transitional Lead……………………
Verse 2
I’m so lonely here… Been so long since I’ve seen your face…Time keeps marching on… Seems no end to this place… But if I close my eyes… I can see you clearly… And dream you’re near me.
Instrumental……………………………….Short lead Lead……………………
Verse 3
Morning comes… I could swear I feel you next to me… But as I shake off the sleep… It’s clear to see… I am all alone… Same as so many days in a row… No… This is not home…
Hook
Rub the sleep from my… tired eyes… My face is set but my heart cries…
My thoughts try to hold me but I push them away…
Watch the sunrise in this place… Struggle with the words I want to say…
Instrumental……………………………….Short lead Lead……………………
Verse 4
I don’t miss you anymore… It’s just a never ending need… I can hold back my tears… But my heart will bleed…Gets the best of me… I confess… Sometimes there is no best.
Instrumental………………………………. Long Lead……………………
Bridge
I hear life calling, but it’s so far away… Feels I am walking on the edge of a blade… And the day’s moving on… Morning’s nearly gone…
Instrumental……………………………….Lead wind down to last verse ……………………
Verse 5
I’ll say goodbye… You know my heart is always with you… You know I love you… Those are the only words I know are true…You are always with me… I’m coming home… I just don’t know when that might be…
Hook
I push the tears from my eyes… I set my face but my heart still cries…
My thoughts try to hold me but I… push them away…
Watch the sunrise… in this place… Start my day…
Watch the sunrise… in this place… Start my day…
(Slows to single acoustic stops at home)
Send this letter home to you… Send this letter home…

Why I Wrote It:
I sat down and made my self open and God gave me this song. It’s a really good song. The emotion to write it came from my time alone, others I knew. It’s hard on relationships, and that is where I was writing from. But part way through I realized that it could be about anyone, anywhere, missing someone. There are thousands of sons, brothers, husbands, sisters, wives and daughters gone to war, or home waiting for those they love. It could be anyone, anywhere missing the one they love…
