Well, he was Thailand based, she was an air force wife
He used to fly weekends, it was the easy life
But then it turned around, and he began to change
She didn't wonder then, she didn't think it strange.
But then he got a call, he had to leave that night
He couldn't say too much, but it would be alright
He didn't need to pack, they'd meet the next night
He had a job to do -- flying to Cambodia.
And as the nights passed by, she tried to trace the past
The way he used to look, the way he used to laugh
I guess she'll never know what got inside his soul
She couldn't make it out, just couldn't take it all.
He had the saddest eyes the girl had ever seen
He used to cry some nights, as though he lived a dream
And as she held him close, he used to search her face
as though she knew the truth -- lost inside Cambodia.
But then a call came through, they said he'd soon be home
She had to pack a case, and they would make a rendezvous
But now a year has passed, and not a single word
And all the love she knew has disappeared out in the haze (Cambodia).
And now the years have passed with not a single word
But there is only one thing left I know for sure:
She won't see his face again.
