Lyrics

THE LETTER

He opened the better, postmarked in May
It said Honey, I hope you're doing well
Things are just fine back here in Dallas
And Baby I miss you like hell

CHORUS:
And my love for you grows stronger every day
I want to marry you and buy a little house
Oh, the children we'll raise will make both of us proud
And our lives will be happy and long

As he read this letter, tears began to fall.
His hands were shaking so bad
He knew he had to write, but how could he tell her
To give up on all of their plans

CHORUS:
Cause her love for him grows stronger every day
She thought they'd marry and buy a little house
And the children they'd raise would make both of them proud
And their lives would be happy and long

As he started to write, the tears kept fallin
He couldn't stop them at all
Cause his best friend, and the love of her life
Had died in battle that night

There'd be no marriage and no little house
No children to make both of them proud
Cause his best friend and the love of her life
Had died in his arms tonight

He opened the letter, postmarked in May
