notes:
 RECORDED ON MY PHONE IN THE DINING ROOM IN BETWEEN LOADS 
OF LAUNDRY. (sorry....leaving town tomorrow)

In the lantern light
Oh, you looked so happy
A blood rush blush
On your friendly face
I will hold that thought
I will keep that memory 
In the hand sewn pocket
Of my hiding place

In the lantern light
We gathered our children
Round the oldest book
In our woodland home
And you read out loud
You spoke proverbs to them 
you their earthly father 
With a godly poem

In the lantern light
You held me surely
you said you come back
when the fightings done
So I filled my days
Since you took your journey
To defend our home
From the coming storm

Oh, keep that glass from getting dirty
Oh, keep those fires burning at home

In the lantern light
I saw bloodied soldiers
I saw broken men
Cry like newborn babes
From the battle field
You kept all my letters
Filled with plans and prayers
And better days

In the lantern light
I have held my anger
I have kept my curses
In my chest
As the oil fades
And the war just over
They will send you home
that you may finally rest
