Performed and Written by Zac Charles Copyright 2011
Zac Charles (full name - Zachary Wayne Charles Short) wrote and performed his heart grabbing song, "Until I Get Home", while serving in Afghanistan as a combat medic in March 2011. The song is for his wife waiting for him . . . and fellow troops with a wife, girlfriend, husband, or boyfriend waiting for them too . . . And it should remain a touching reminder for troops and their special loved ones waiting for the return home from deployment.
Zac Charles' live performance of "Until I Get Home" in his barrack's room in March 2011.

Verse 1: Honey I know that I've had to be away Far too long, you shouldn't have to live this way On your own, in that dark and lonely place I know you need me there
Chorus: So I'll be on my way home Just as soon as my job is done I'll never quit what I start Which is why I'm still here, It's why you still have my heart And I can't promise you much, But you'll always have my love Keep it close to your soul, Wherever you go, until I get home
Verse 2: Honey I know, that you want a normal life Where I come home, and cuddle up to you each night But while I'm gone, you give me strength to carry on It's your love that makes me strong
Bridge: They say home is where the heart is, That's where I wanna be But if the Good Lord says it's time to go Please don't worry about me
Chorus: Cuz I'll be on my way home and I can hear Him say "well done" And I will wait for you my love And you'll never be alone Girl, just keep on holding on Until I get home
