lyrics

In the Breeze
(Lyrics: Paul Simmonds)

Well I said they’d fly the flags
When I came home to you
They’d blow the bugles and fire the guns
To re-unite us two

The TV and the papers
Are there as well
To show the faces of the boys
Back home from hell

I am in the breeze that flutters
I’m in the sun that burns
I’m in the rain that washes
I have returned

We’d come in on a special flight
Just me and all the guys
And the top brass would salute us
And you would dry your eyes

And through the gleaming caps and boots
I’d swagger through the sun
To hold you once again
Now the job was done

I am in the breeze that flutters
I’m in the sun that burns
I’m in the rain that washes
I have returned

I came in on a special flight
With no flags or guns or brass
And no cameras there to greet us
On that lonely rain soaked path

Darling, bury me in a quiet spot
Far from south Iraq
And on the stone just put ‘husband, dad
Who finally made it back’

I am in the breeze that flutters
I’m in the sun that burns
I’m in the rain that washes
I have returned
