My love, do you remember when we were together last?
You told me that you loved me, that we’d never be apart
The next day, you had disappeared - a note left in your place
You fled the noble call to war and left me in disgrace

You’re dead to me

Now as your brothers march away, under our nation's flag
I stand alone, not knowing if you're ever coming back
How proud the other women, as their husbands pass on by
And wretched me, deserted here, to mourn your treachery

You’re dead to me
