Promise You Won't Forget Me?

Time is going by so fast
I’ll have to leave soon
going on my deployment is last
on the list of things I want to do
Promise me my love you won’t forget me?

When I leave write me a letter,
send me some pictures
to the address I’ll send you a little later
Promise you won’t forget me?

Don’t leave me while I am gone.
For I will feel as if I ‘m forever alone
in a strange place
missing that familiar beautiful face
Promise you won’t forget me?

I’ll miss you
but I’ll see you soon.
For my plane is here
so now I have to leave here.
Promise you won’t forget me?
