Letters From Vietnam Lyrics

by B.O.B.

Goodbye, my love
The country is in need of me
And I heard there were signs for war
So I'm goin' overseas

So don't cry, my love
The skies above will cry for you
And I'll be safe so hold belief
I'll come back home for you

Yeah
Yeah
So please tell me it's not true
After all the love I've given
You've found someone new
And oh, of all the things I've seen
This has got to be, got to be
The greatest tragedy
Oh you, you let it all slip away
But soon you'll find
Soon you'll find yeah
What you can't replace

La la la
(I gave away my love)
La la la la la la la
(That I promised you I would keep)
La la la la la la
(a thousand deaths I died that day)
La la la la la la la
(When two became one)
La la la
(A greater force pulled you away
So I got on my knees and begged
This silence replaced my tears
So goodbye my love
August 1, 1965)

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
So please tell me it's not true
After all the love I've given
You've found someone new
And oh, of all the things I've seen
This has got to be, got to be
The greatest tragedy
Oh you, you let it all slip away
But soon you'll find
Soon you'll find yeah
What you can't replace

Yeah
Goodbye my love
As I bid farewell to thee
All is fair in love and war
So I'm goin' overseas
