    Waiting
    (written by Billy Little) 21st June 2009

    I stand on the tarmac feeling cold, and alone
    I wait for the moment my love is coming home
    You gave your life for freedom, so we can all be free
    But as I stand here waiting, I wish you were here with me

    The cargo doors are opening, I`m trying to look inside
    I see your coffin draped with the union jack, with soldiers by your side
    They slowly bring you off the plane, my heart it skips a beat
    My sobs are uncontrollable, as I lay a rose at your feet

    They place your coffin in the hearse, for the long journey home
    Now that you are with me, I don`t feel all alone
    You were my first love, and you will be my last
    The future looks so bleak, I long for the past

    I will not feel your touch again, or watch you as you sleep
    Pick up your clothes or hear you laugh, the sadness makes me weep
    The memories will stay with me, I love you, out loud I say
    As I lay you down to rest, on this cold and dreary day
