While You're Away


United States
39° 0' 37.8828" N, 95° 41' 35.2896" W

In the dark,
I swear I feel
Your arms around my heart

In the day
I think of you
I pretend it's ok

Knowing that you're
A million miles away
In the war

Makes every letter
Every sentance
That much better

I count down the weeks
Until I can see
The red in your cheeks

Until then I
talk to my steering wheel
Pretending I'm looking you in the eye
