Lyrics

End of the Line
© Brian Nelson

Sittin in the desert in the hot damn sun
Feelin kind of lonesome, missing someone
So I walked to the mailroom and looked inside
Saw a letter from you and thoughts raced through my mind

Will you tell me that you miss me
And say everything’s fine
Or that you no longer love me
And this is the end of the line

Words cannot express the way I feel
And every day we’re apart makes it harder to deal
But you know why I’m here, why I’d lay down my life
To keep you and the kids safe at night

I slowly open that letter and analyze every word
Is that the smell of your perfume, or your voice I heard

You tell me you miss me
And say everything’s fine
This year’s up, I’ll be home soon
And this is the end of the line

Words cannot express the way I feel
And every day we’re apart makes it harder to deal
But you know why I’m here, why I’d lay down my life
To keep you and the kids safe at night

I don’t need a medal or a hero’s parade
I just want to hold my kids and see the smile on your face

Being away it almost killed me
We did our best to get by
It’s time I hung up my boots
This is the end of the line

Words cannot express the way I feel
Every day we we’re apart made it hard to deal
But you know why I’m here, why I’d lay down my life
To keep you and the kids safe at night
