HELL OF A HONEYMOON

Tom Gonzalez / Eva Gonzalez / Maia Sharp

Married at the courthouse in New Mexico
Then straight to Kansas then San Antonio
Afghanistan to Saudi to Colorado
Sometimes in the middle of the night
He’d just be gone

And every time he came back like a stranger walking in
They’d get to know each other and he’s leaving again
The next time she saw him he would not be who he’d been
But she’d make it alright
And soldier on

On 30 minute notice, no time to themselves
She felt like a mistress waiting on the shelf

When you take off the armor 24 years later
You pray you still love what you see
When you wash away the danger, the lonely and the anger
Welcome to the rediscovery
Does it end or do the bride and groom
Finally get that honeymoon

All the other titles they wore around for years
The soldier, the teacher, the mandatory volunteer
Now the husband and the wife is the only call they hear
It’s like the desert after a rain
And the drought was not in vain

When you take off the armor 24 years later
You pray you still love what you see
When you wash away the danger, the lonely and the anger
Welcome to the rediscovery
Does it end or do the bride and groom
Finally get that honeymoon

Paris, Madrid, Rome, Antigua, London, Hawaii, Cancun
It’s a hell of a honeymoon
It’s a hell of a honeymoon
They went through hell for the honeymoon
