Lyrics

A Million Miles Away from Home

Written By: 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 judgement 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.
