I will not sleep well tonight (I will not sleep well tonight)
I will not be found when the morning brings the dreaded light
I will kiss the lips that say goodbye (I will kiss your lips)
Clinging to the comfort of my God all night

I will not be moved by and by (I will not be moved by and by)
I am not ashamed of the battle though my eyes may cry
I will kiss the lips that bid farewell (I will kiss your lips)
As you march to the sound of the mission bell

Oh the glimmer of the light along the water
And the sound of the children on the shore
Oh the sweet fields of gold beneath the big blue sky
Let it be
Home is me
You are mine

Life is moving on day by day (life is moving on day by day)
Friendship overflowing, but to me you cannot be replaced
I will hold you tight in my dreams (I will hold you tight)
Though you’re gone you’re not as distant as it seems

Oh the glimmer of the light along the water
And the sound of the children on the shore
Oh the sweet fields of gold beneath the big blue sky
Let it be
Home is me
You are mine

Oh the purple mountains majesty is calling
And the northern lights still dance above the snow
Yes amazing grace is still the fire beneath this life

Let it be
Home is me
You are mine

Let it be
Home is me
You are mine

Let it be
Home is me
And you are mine

    General Comment:This is a great torch song which I think really invokes that sense of longing for someone who is far away. As the above poster mentioned Amber and Joy wrote this song for the troops and it beautifully invokes the sense of loss and sadness that comes with having a loved one go off to war and the worry that comes with knowing that they are far away and may not return. Yet at the same time there is sense of standing firm and being strong for that loved one who is fighting in a battle and performing their duty. There is a sense that the loved one who is far away is kept close in the hearts and memories of those at home so that they are never really as "distant as they seem" nor are the easily replaced. And for the loved one that is at war and far away, home can not only be found in the place that they have left behind but most importantly within the loved ones who are waiting for them to return safely - it's a beautiful song.
