The Ship on His Arm
Where are you now She writes, "Where are you now, my love? Do you have food to eat, Shoes for your tired feet Am I the one you're dreaming of?" Do you know how I miss you How I long to kiss you Pray for the day you will come Back to me my darling one He thinks about her All through the long watches of night The bullets are flying, Young men are dying He prays for the first crack of light And when he can finally sleep Into his dream she'll sweep On the sweet web she has spun And for a while they are one When she kisses the ship on his arm All of his sorrows unravel He knows he will come to no harm Over all of the miles he has travel Her love is an anchor Her love is forever It's true now her love is the charm When she kisses the ship on his arm Blessed are they these fearless young lovers Their lives have just barely begun Blessed is the day they return to each other After all of the battles are done And finally they are one When she kisses the ship on his arm And all of their sorrows unravel They've come through the eye of the storm Unafraid of the miles left to travel Love is an anchor Love is forever It's true now that love is the truth When she kisses the ship on his arm
