A Beautiful Life
No one said a word; it was just that special look
She came in and closed the door; one touch was all it took
She held him, oh, so tight, and the moment felt so right
Love would last forever; they'd always be together

They lived a beautiful life
It was an amazing night
They lived a beautiful life last night

Whoever said that life was fair never left to fight a war
She was crying tears and hiding fears watching him walk out the door
She'd take his place if they'd let her go
The love they share nobody knows
They knew this day would come
They can't stop what they've begun


He came home a different man; she tried hard to understand
Hell is war, war is hell; will love survive?; only time will tell
They stuck it out; they saw it through
Love is strong; love has been renewed
Now their love will last forever; they'll always be together


Let's live a beautiful life; let's live a beautiful life
Let's live a beautiful life tonight

Short Song Description:
They are in love. He goes off to war. Comes home a different man. They work through it.
Long Song Description:
They were living a beautiful life 'til he went off to war. She would go for him, but she can't. He came home a very changed man. It was difficult, but they persevered and once again came to live "a beautiful life." Perhaps they can teach the rest of us a thing or two (see tag).
Story Behind the Song:
My co-writer and I were thinking about the sadness of going off to war, especially when leaving behind someone you deeply care about.
