I closed my eyes
Thinking of home

Wishing, Dreaming
Hoping, Praying

The gunshot cracked
The air whistled

Wishing, Dreaming
Hoping, Praying

Goodbye Mary
Goodbye John

Wishing, Dreaming
Hoping, Praying

No sight, no sound
No feel of the ground

Wishing, Dreaming
Hoping, Praying

I'll see you again
My loved ones

Wishing, Dreaming
Hoping, Praying

I'll see you soon
Dearest Granny

Wishing, Dreaming
Hoping, Praying

Life is over
Death has come

Wish for home
Dream of family
Hope for no pain
Pray for the soul.
