THE WAY THAT LIFE WAS

FRANK 
I had no wish to go, for it was not my fight,
And I missed you so, night after lonely night,
The hardest thing of all was leaving you behind,
But though quite out of sight, you were seldom out of mind 

CLAIRE 
Those wounded, frightened boys, Id comfort as they cried,
Held them as they suffered, held them as they died.
And caught amongst the carnage, I retained my sanity,
Recalling how you looked, when you waved goodbye to me,
And dreaming of the day, reunited we would be. 

But this is not the way that life was,
When we were first joined as one.

FRANK 
This is not the way that life was,
Back before the madness, had begun.

BOTH 
For five long years I dreamt of when,
We could be together again,
And through those years Id plan and scheme,
But this is just not like that dream,
This is just not like that dream.

FRANK 
There once was a time it seemed we had it all,
But as war engulfed our lives, we answered dutys call

CLAIRE
The future that we shared, so carefully mapped and planned,
We had to put on hold, lost in a foreign land

BOTH 
Once our lives both seemed to grow, much richer day by day
Now were different people, to the ones that marched away

FRANK 
Why isnt it the same as it was before the war?

CLAIRE 
Frank, were not the same 

But this is not the way that life was,
When we were first joined as one.

FRANK 
This is not the way that life was,
Back before the madness, had begun

BOTH 
For five long years I dreamt of when,
We could be together again,
And through those years Id plan and scheme,
But this is just not like that dream,
This is just not like that dream.
