12 Sundays

I've had to put a distance
A thousand miles apart
still closer than you've ever been
written on my heart

Spend some time on this landscape
and you'll never call it home
I'm sorry I had to leave you
and that you feel alone

Chorus:
But I read our daughter's letter
as the tears ran down my face
her picture always calms me
in this god-forsaken place
"Daddy can you come home
My birthday is next Monday
Mommy got out the calendar
and says there's 12 more Sundays
I heard mommy praying
that you make it 12 more Sundays

I've felt just like a target
with no bulls eye to be seen
and I wish that you could hold me
After I have these dreams

Spend some time on this landscape
and you would have them too
I wish that all my crazy dreams
were only about you

Repeat Chorus

So I took out my calendar
and ripped another page
Just 12 more Sundays left for me
to calm this inner rage

The guy who slept next to me
he won't make it back
its my goal to beat the odds
to live through these attacks

So I picked up my daughter's letters...
Repeat Chorus
