My Love Is In America (Mick Hanly)

My love is in America
And I miss him tonight
So much so
I feel like taking the money
We've saved
And catching a flight (2x)

The children are asleep in bed
And I'm on my own
Even though I've read his letters
Again & again I'm alone

But the money I send home
Is barely enough
There's an ocean that keeps us apart
I've been lonely for home
But I mustn't give up
What about this aching heart

Johnny come home
I need you tonight (2x)

My love is in America
But it's hard to go out
Just because
Certain assumptions are made
When your man's not about (2x)

My love is in America
And I'm not so sure
Maybe I'd rather him here in my arms
And us to be poor

Stillthe money I send home is barely enough
There's an ocean that keeps us apart
I've an aching for home
But I mustn't give up

What about this aching heart

Johnny come home
I need you tonight (2x)

(the above last verse repeats 3x).
