With her eldest out in the field
Since the day that the orders came
And took her youngest boy away

Took him over the ocean
Like a soldier
He showed no emotion

He’s always been special
Not just one of the crowd
Got his name in the paper
Woulda made his old man so proud

And you can see for miles around
Standing on
The shores by my little town
There’s a heartbeat that beating profound
You can hear it out there
You can feel it I swear

Well the restless gotta get outta this place
Those who settled search for a saving grace
You can read the stories written there on their faces
In my little town
My little town

Another fight in a war gone wrong
With all our soldiers standing big and strong
Thinking what he wouldn’t say
So he talks of this girl back home
And how the made angels in the fallen snow

And we’re saving our money
To move out on our own
In a little house nearby
She’s gonna make it our home... someday

And you can see for miles around
Standing on
The shores by my little town
There’s a heartbeat that beating profound
You can feel it out there
You can hear it I swear

When I come home my girl’s gonna be surprised
Gonna slip in the back door like a dream in disguise
And we’ll make love whiles she’s lookin’ in my eyes
In my little town
My little town

Well we have a factory with idle machines
And high school heroes with their scholarship dreams
And weekend warriors who have answered the call
Whose homecomings were a surprise after all
And now that mother with her chin on her chest
Says she wishes they’d have dressed him in his Sunday best
‘cause he ain’t just another soldier that’s been laid to rest
In my little town
My little town

And his girl is still asleep upstairs
In that little house that would have been there
She wants to dream only of his stares
In my little town
My little town
