olga, when

olga, when

When the sergeant

Takes my rifle

I search the crowd for you

When my buddy

Gives me his hand


I climb aboard the truck

I see you standing in the distance

When I see the land

Obscured by the thick clouds

With arms out-stretched

You run towards me

When my boot touches the tarmac

My reflection in your loving eyes

Quenches the loneliness in my soul

When I take you into my arms


I squeeze you with all my strength

I know our two bodies will be

Tonight, one naked flesh

I promise you my darling wife

God willing

Olga, when

This god-forsaken war ends
