Deployment Songs

Music is therapeutic to me. When my hubby is deployed I always have a “Deployment Sucks” playlist on my iPhone for those times that I’m feeling down in the dumps.  Listening to these songs make me make me feel like I’m not alone.  It’s nice to know there are other people out there who understand how I feel. And, I hate to admit it but it actually makes me feel a little better that the singers are just as miserable as I am. I know that sounds deranged but you know what they say, “misery loves company”.
Here are some of the songs on my playlist-
Far Away by Nickelback  
“That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me
and you’ll never go”
Soldier’s Wife by  Amy Downing
“Phone calls and letters, can’t wait to get them both
Missed plays and birthdays when’s Daddy coming home
Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by all the daily grind
I ask the LORD please don’t let me go out of my mind”
Just Let Me Cry by Amy Downing & Stephanie Sharp
“Being strong is what I do best For the kids, myself and you
I hide emotions behind a smile 
Seems like the right thing to do
Don’t want my worries bringing you down
So I push all my feelings aside 
It’s time I show you how I feel
These tears I can no longer hide”
Army Wives: A League Of Extraordinary Women
Amy Downing, Stephanie Sharp & Jennifer Bogdanowitz   2008
Our husbands are heroes around the world
And we are heroes here at home
In the midst of our crazy lives
We do what we do
We stand faithful, strong together
Building bonds that last forever

When You’re Gone by Avril Lavigne
“I always needed time on my own 
I never thought I’d need you there when I cry 
And the days feel like years when I’m alone 
And the bed where you lie is made up on your side
When you walk away I count the steps that you take 
Do you see how much I need you right now?
When you’re gone 
The pieces of my heart are missing you 
When you’re gone 
The face I came to know is missing too
When you’re gone 
The words I need to hear to always get me through 
The day and make it okI miss you
I’ve never felt this way before 
Everything that I do reminds me of you 
And the clothes you left, they lie on the floor 
And they smell just like you, 
I love the things that you do”
Wish You Were Here by Avril Lavigne
All those crazy things we did 
Didn’t think about it, just went with it 
You’re always there, you’re everywhere 
But right now I wish you were here
Damn, damn, damn 
What I’d do to have you here, here, here 
I wish you were here 
Damn, damn, damn 
What I’d do to have you near, near, nearI wish you were here”
Sleeping With The Telephone by  Reba McEntire
“So here I am while he’s gone to some foreign land
And I cry ‘cause I’m all alone 
And the nights get so cold and long 
And I try not to think he won’t come home 
But I’m sleeping with the telephone”
A Soldier’s Wife by Roxie Dean
“We do the things we used to do
Go to church, go to school
But you could drive a truck right through
The hole that’s in our life”
“Sometimes I’m angry
Sometimes confused
I live and die by
The evening news
But I tell my babies he will be all right
And I hope it’s not a lie”
She Daisy
“I wonder, I pray
I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it’s so hard living here ON MY OWN
So please come home soon
Come home soon
I know that we’re together
Even though we’re far apart
And I’ll wear our lucky penny
Round my neck pressed to my heart”
Simple Plan- Jet Lagged
“What time is it where you are?
(I miss you more than anything)
I’m back at home, you feel so far
(Waiting for the phone to ring)
It’s getting lonely living upside down
I don’t even want to be in this town
Trying to figure out, the time zone’s making me crazy
You say good morning when it’s midnight
Going out of my head, alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
And it’s driving me mad, I miss you so bad
And my heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Is so jet lagged”
When I’m Gone by Three Doors Down
“So hold me when I’m here, right me when I’m wrong,
Hold me when I’m scared, and love me when I’m gone.
Everything I am, and everything in me I’ll also be the one you wanted me to be.
I’ll never let you down, even if I could I’d give up everything if only for your good.
So hold me when I’m here, right me when I’m wrong.
You can hold me when I’m scared, you won’t always be there, so love me when I’m gone.
Love me when I’m gone.”
Every Time You Go by Three Doors Down
“Every time you go, you take a part of me
A part of me with you
Every time you go
I feel it in my soul
Every, every
Every time you go, half what I used to be,
when you were in my arms
Every time you go
You take a part of me, a part of me with you
Every time you go
I count the days until you’re back again
back here by my side
When we’re apart it feels like, something in me
something in me dies”
