Keep the Homefires Burning
By recording this song I hope to help people remember the cost of war and also to share the feelings that the families of the armed forces who are away for so much time still go through today and to let them know how much we appreciate the work they do. Lest we Forget.
The message in the song lets us share in the pain of those left waiting for the return of their loved ones. The song asks us to “turn the dark clouds inside out” to reveal their silver lining and to stay strong while the soldiers are away at war. The original title of the song and the last line is “Til the boys come home” ; for me the song is about being strong while their families wait for their return
