Far Away

You're
so far away
so far away
from me again
I knew that you
would soon have to go
but please
come back do
I miss you so
the way you smile at me
your face 
the way you talk 
and then your hands
and the way you walk
your eyes
they'r so blue
I do love you
and when
you come home
and stay
right here with me
and you will never more
go to war
and be
just like before

Why 
do they make war again
and when
when will they learn
that all that strife
all that loss of life
to scorch
and to burn
is our concern
I wish for peace
for you and me
and may it be
just like before
that you went to war
and please
let there be
a world that's free
and so
I will wait
for you 
by the gate
I love you so my dear
hurry back
to me
for I am here
