First World War

Oh Millie

There’s a loneliness at the front
when the letters don’t come
you can tell the guys that ain’t had one
there’s a look in their eyes of hurt

I can cope with the mud
with the rats and the hun
when I know I’m still in Millie’s heart
 but when the letters are late
I get in a state and think she’s in someone else’s arms

Oh Millie I know it sounds silly
but your letters from home are the key
Oh Millie i know it sounds silly
but the photo of you , keeps me safe

There’s a loneliness at the front
when the letters don’t come

Oh Millie I know it sounds silly
but your letters from home are the key

your letters are like gold
and couldn’t be sold
for all the dosh in the world

not having a girl to hold in your mind
can make a man so lonely

Oh Millie I know it sounds silly
but your letters from home are the key
Oh Millie i know it sounds silly
but the photo of you , keeps me safe

Fades
Oh Millie I know it sounds silly
but your letters from home are the key
Oh Millie i know it sounds silly
but the photo of you , keeps me safe

I can make an argument for either "safe" or "sane", but I believe I prefer "sane" just a bit. Because I think war makes a person not so sane. That's me.

I would definitely go with "sane" instead of "safe" :) Good song you have going here. After seeing, way too many, war-movies, I got some flashbacks reading your lyrics :)
