Saying goodbye never seemed so tough
Formulate ways to not be wrong
Wearing this burden on my own
Sanity might be lost in the fight
Somehow the screams seem louder tonight
Don't know if things will be alright
Sent away to protect
Freedoms in jeopardy
With all of the loved ones watching silently
Sent away to protect
Violence is gripping me
With all of the loved ones watching silently

I'm writing this letter to let you know
I feel like I might be letting go
Wish I was with you back at home
Send my regards to everyone
I'll miss them with all my hearts
And it's tearing me apart

Sanity might be lost in the fight
Somehow the screams seem louder tonight
Don't know if things will be alright
Nobody wants to be alone
Nobody wants to fight alone

    General CommentI've actually heard from Dave Williams that his song is about soldiers leaving their home to fight for their family, and thinking about their home. It's also fairly clear with lines like "Sent away to protect, freedoms in jeopardy"
