Married to the Military

I wait here by the phone,
waiting for a call and a sign that your alive and well.
I lay alone in our bed,
Clutching your picture to my heart.

Do you think you can understand the way I feel inside right now,
The pride, the love, the hope that lives within my soul.
Do you think you can imagine, the way my life goes on?
It goes on because he fights for me.
Married to the Military.

I sit here waiting for you letter all week long,
I beat the mailman to the box every day.
I never leave my phone for chance that you might call,
I think its super-glued to my side.

Do you think you can fathom how I feel inside?
The pride, the love, the hope that lives within my soul.
Do you know how proud I am,
because he is out fighting for you and me?
Married to the Military.
