Apoptygma Berzerk – Cambodia lyrics

Well he was in Thailand based.
She was an airforce 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 couln'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

But then a call came through, they said
He'd soon be home.
She had to pack a case and they
Would make a rendez-vous.
But now the year has passed and
Not a single word and
All the love she knew has disappeared
Out in the haze.

And now the years have passed
Without a single word.
But there is only one thing left I
Know for sure,
She won't see his face again.
