After the guns are silent

After your wounds have healed

After those crosses been planted in all those fields

After that long boat ride all the way across the sea

And after this train carries thee

I will love you after the war

Love you for always, forever more

I will love you after the war

Forever, for always and more

After your boots dry and the tobacco is all but gone

Along with all those post cards you’ve carried under your arm

After I remember all the words I could not say

And after this long night fades away

After this blackbird lifts from up off your chest

And after your soul takes its final rest

My love I forgive you, you never planned to die

And love I’ll place two pennies over your eyes
