a million miles away from home (2006 Bob Stewart)

Today we stop to say goodbye to the children who fought and died
Far too young, and too alone a million miles away from home

Lovers cry out in the night searching for that saving light
It's far too dark and too alone a million miles away from home

Brothers and sisters kneel and pray; wait on for that judgment day
You feel so empty and so alone a million miles away from home

A mother's waiting by the phone, she prays sweet Jesus will you lift this stone
Can't bear a broken heart alone a million miles away from home

Flags are flying, they gently wave; soldiers fight on, must be brave
Far too young and too alone a million miles away from home

This mountain's high, the valley's deep; the way is hard, and this journey's steep
Sons and daughters must walk alone a million miles away from home

Today we stopped to say goodbye to our children who fought and died
Far too young and too alone a million miles away from home
