I am flying home from Frankfurt, I am sitting next to Leslie
In the Air Force stationed overseas for 57 days
Fueling US airplanes that had stopped off in Bulgaria
And now she's headed home to see her babies

Across the aisle Marines are talking, I turn my head, they're flashing
Documents of service, words like purple by their names
The movie screen's a video of Elvis Presley's daughter
Singing something about Memphis while a car goes up in flames

I'm curious to know what Leslie thinks about the war
But all she talks about is going home, she's going home
She's looking forward
I'm looking sideways

Just spent a week in Germany, I hadda change my diet
There were many late night conversations, cigarettes, and beer
Playing music, foreign films, Iraq and what the Germans
Thought about the U.S. going over there

I look around, Leslie's got some headphones and a CD
Her head is swaying side to side, the cover's in her lap
"Moonlight Piano Favorites," she starts to snap her fingers
And I just stop and take a look at that

Can you picture Leslie as her thumb and fingers snap
If these "Moonlight Piano Favorites" turn a soldier into that

Then I'm sending off some headphones to leaders everywhere
With some "Moonlight Piano Favorites"
And a prayer
