Floorboards creak
Street lights glistening
In your sleep
I hear you whispering

Your trembling spoke volumes
You fear for me
Keep this medallion close
If you don't hear from me

'Cause I don't know when I'll be around again
I'll be around, again
I don't know when I'll be around again
I'll be around, again

Ships set sail
Early in the morning
I might fail
Without any warning

And I don't know when I'll be around again
I'll be around, again
I don't know when I'll be around again
I'll be around again
I don't know when I'll be around again
I'll be around, again

This might be the end
This might be the end

Go to sleep, sweet little girl
Go to sleep, you'll always be my little girl
Go to sleep, sweet little girl
Go to sleep, you'll always be my little girl

[Repeat x2]

I don't know when...

(spoken, in French:)
I knew this moment was going to come...
I knew you were going to leave

    General CommentPretty simple yet beautiful song. About a soldier's last night with someone special to him. Off to war it is!

    PS - you may want to change the song to the french name (I almost didn't find it)
