Corporal Hale is P1.
Stable but needs immediate evac, Spud.
-'Can casualty be moved to Normandy for evac? Over.'
-Wait out. Medics, can we carry him out?
-Well, he's stable when he's flat.
At an angle there's a chance he could bleed out or bleed in.
-We need a winch, pal.
-That's what I've been saying.
-We've got a stretcher.
We should have enough bodies to keep him level.
-Have you seen how fucking steep it is?
-Just cut the corner, go up the re-entrant.
No way are we leaving the path. I'm saying stick tight, wait here for the heli. That's my opinion.
Mark, what you thinking?
We need to pull him away from the rocks. Get him out in the open.
There, the raised bank.
-Right, lads, listen up.
-I need two bodies to help clear a route over there.
-'Kilo Five Alpha, send, over.'
-Kilo Five Bravo, preparing to move.

I don't think that's how it work.
One here, boss.
Just mark it, buddy, and then deviate.
-So I killed lots of people but I'm not a soldier?

Stuey, smile for the camera, buddy.
-Fancy getting a photo?
Where's my bergen?
Oh, fuck, sorry, mate. I took it over there.
-That's one for the khazi, that one.
-Bring that other med bergen out with you, yeah?
You all right, Mark?
You smash those fuckers tonight, yeah?
-Will do, buddy.
With fucking pleasure.
You faggots, stop flirting.
If you're the Russians, you know, '79, '80 and you're defending Normandy...
Where'd you lay your APs?
-Try not to fuck it up from here, eh?
-Dead ground on approaches to the OP.
-Why, what's up?
What the fuck are mines doing down here, mate?
Oh, for fuck's sake.
Oh, fuck. I'm down. Lads, I'm down.
Fuck. My leg. My fucking leg!
-Stu, wait, I'm coming.
-Jay, Smudge, get the fuck back!
Stand fast, Smudge, the whole place is fucking loaded.
I stood on a fucking...
Safe route is not fucking safe, man.
Ah, fuck! Ah, fuck!
Somebody get me some fucking morphine.
Oh, fuck. Ah, fuck. Fuck off.
It's all right, Stu. Let me do my job, buddy.
-Let me do my job.
-Leave me! Fucking leave me!
-Fuck! Fucking hell.
-Was it fucking Stu?
-Come on. Come on, keep your shit together.
-Alex, do you need any kit?
-Get off me.
Ah, leave me. Just fucking leave me.
-Right, all done.
-Nice and tight, mate.
-Get ready to take his leg.
Right. PEARSON SCREAMS
-OK, all done.
-Any kit out?
Right, move it.
-Fuck. Oh, fuck!
-Ah, fucking leave it...!
-Right, all right...
-What kit have you got?
-Mate, where's your fucking bergen?
He was carrying it.
What have you got?
Er, morphine, tourniquet, saline, dressing. One of each.
Ken, elevate the leg!
-What do you need, pal. Let me know.
-Stay there, Tug. Just fucking stay with Stu.
-Mark. Now, Mark do you need me in there?
-Stand firm, Jarhead. No-one in.
Help yourself here. Here, take the fucking leg.
-'Kilo Two to Kilo Five Bravo. SITREP, over.'
-Take his leg.
-His leg, mate.
-Move it, move.
-You got it?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Kilo Five Bravo. Mine strike, Stu Pearson. P1, left leg.
Notify cas evac need for second winch. Over.
-'Kilo Two to Kilo Five Bravo. It's a negative on the winch. Over.'
Say again. I was informed Black Hawk was inbound, over.
-'We'll get you out of there. Just hang tight, Bravo. OK, wait out.'
Go to fucking shit!
Can we not just take him over the ridge?
Right, there's a...there's a route up to Normandy already. It's already fucking marked.
-Just take 'em up there. Enough is enough we're getting blown up here!
-Smudge, Smudge, Smudge.
Did you not just see what happened to your pal Stu?
-The fucking whole place is charged, mate.
We're going nowhere. Fucking sit down.
Turn your fucking head around and don't look anywhere except for up there.
Just don't look at him, all right?
See, you hear that? Angels with fucking wings.
Fuck me. Ah, fuck!
That's not a Black Hawk.
Laid them in fucking threes, didn't they?
What's that, pal?
Fucking APs. Ah, fuck.
Hit the guy treating the first victim.
That's a Chinook.
They'll be dropping the MERT at Lancaster.
How you doing, fella? You all right?
Save my nuts, Doc. That's all I ask.
Hey. Your nuts are fine.
-Fuck. Oh, Alex, it's still bleeding, mate.
-What? Yeah, all right, smart.
-This is my last tourniquet.
-Boys...this fucking minefield.
-All right, mate. All right.
Here's something to put on it.
-Right, hold this fucking leg too.
-All right, mate, we've got you.
Kilo Five Bravo to all Kilos. We have a Chinook inbound.
Please confirm this is not our cas evac, over.
-Snoop, you got a med pack?
-'Kilo Four, affirmative.'
-'Kilo Five Bravo. Cas evac inbound.'
-Luke, med pack?
-Nah, I got nothing, mate.
-'Recommend move casualty to HLS nearby. Over.'
Negative. Confirm, we have two, repeat, two P1s requiring cas evac.
Movement impossible due to location being minefield...
Chinook unsuitable for pick-up due to location being minefield
Request HH60 with winch, as previously indicated.
Location is a fucking minefield. Over.
-'Chinook only asset available at present. Over.'
Can I have direct comms with Chinook?
-'Negative, Kilo Five Bravo, comms via JTAC to Apache to Chinook.'
-Whoever this is, come in. RADIO:
-'Go ahead, Bravo.'
Suggest Chinook enter via re-entrant to south-west.
Back wheels down onto the rocks. We'll drop smoke.
We may be able to load one casualty this way. Over.
-You fucking wait out, pal.
-'Kilo Two to Kilo Five Bravo.
'They're not going to land in a minefield, buddy. Just sit tight.'
Hey! Drop smoke.
We need to show him where to touch down, yeah.
..Not to land in the fucking wadi. This is a hot HLS, repeat, mines, over
The fucking rocks. Land on the rocks.
-What's he fucking saying?
-He wants to bring him over.
All right, let's do it, then.
No fucking way. That's 30 metres to fucking carry him.
-You fuck off!
-Bring him on!
We fucking wait! We get them to send in the ATOs, clear us a fucking path out.
Ammunitions Technical Officer. ATO, fucker.
What the fuck are they doing?
-TO. Take off.
-It's like the fucking YMCA.
-'Charlie, what's going on?'
-They're not moving.
They're signalling something. I can't work it out.
What's going on, mate?
The airframe's here, but we can't get you fucking over there. For fuck's sake.
Any call sign, tell the bird to clear the fuck out of here!
This is a hot HLS, repeat, mines. Over.
They are posing a major risk to themselves and to us!
Mark's taken it in the chest...
..and Stu's been hit again.
And the med's down.
Oi, Jarhead, get him out of here, man. Fucking get that man up.
Fucking get him out of here. You do not let that fucking man drop!
Come on, man, get your arse over here.
Get him out. Help him out!
It's all right, mate, come on.
What do I do?
Tug, what do I fucking do?
Tug! Tug, what do I fucking do?
You fu... Somebody get that...
SCREAMS OF INJURED SOLDIERS
-I'm fucking dying, man.
-What do I do?
Just hang fucking tight, Mark.
I'm going to get you out of here.
SCREAMS OF INJURED SOLDIERS
-Come and help me out!
Tug, what we doing?
Mark's got wounds to the chest. It's pretty fucking ugly.
Stu's been hit again but...
I can't see where, there's fuck loads of blood.
-Where's the fucking chopper?
And Ken's got no fucking idea.
And w... what med kit have you got?
I left me day sack over there. It's still got a bit of stuff left.
Ken. Ken, should be a day sack near you. Can you see it?
-Yeah, yeah it's here.
-All right, pal.
Can you try and reach it for me?
Ken, fucking hell.
-He's going to set off another...
-Ken, Ken! Don't worry about it, mate.
We'll fucking sack it off, mate. Don't worry, we'll try something else.
-Wait, I'm nearly there.
-Ken, don't do it! No! No, Ken, fucking don't!
I've got it! I've got it!
OK, what's it got?
IV fluids. Some dressings.
Two sticks of morphine. That's it.
Er, tourniquet. Has it got a tourniquet?
No, no. That's all there is.
Ken, listen to me.
You need to get those dressings to Mark's chest.
Yeah, you need to make your way over there.
OK. OK. OK.
-OK, I'm here. I'm here.
-Right, then... I want you to use a rifle sling
to tourniquet his arm, yeah?
And that'll stop the bleeding. All right?
-That's it, tourniquet his arm.
And try to cannulate and get some IVs into him.
That's it, tourniquet his arm. Yeah.
No, just stop. Mark. Mark, I've got to!
-You need to try to cannulate.
Just a circle, mucker.
Tie it in a circle and put it round his arm, all right mate?
Put it round his arm and tie it tight, it'll stop the bleeding.
Nobody's asking you to do open fucking heart surgery, Ken.
Where do you want me to fucking tie it?
His arm is barely fucking hanging on!
Please, Mark, please.
Someone help me out.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, all right, all right, Ken, Ken, Ken. Just forget the tourniquet.
Use the T-shirt, plug the fucking hole.
OK, let me...
-Mark, stop. Mark.
-Where's the fucking Motorola?
-Fucking stop, mate! OK, OK, OK.
Must have gone up with Mark.
Ken. Ken, look at me.
You're doing a fucking great job, all right, mucker.
Ah, fucking hell!
Fucking wait. Sit, sit down.
If you get yourself pinged halfway we've got ourselves a whole new nightmare.
But I'm the only... I'm the only medic and this is the only fucking med kit.
You were just telling Smudge not to be a dick, right don't do anything stupid.
Yeah, but this is stupid.
It is a bit fucking stupid.
Yeah, but I've got a plan.
-Listen, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop.
-Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Easy, mate, what is it?
-It's my fucking lung.
-You're supposed to land on the fucking thing.
OK. OK. OK...
OK, OK, OK, OK...
-That's much better.
OK. OK, now.
OK. OK. OK...
Come on, you fucking pussy. Fucking hell.
What are you doing, Tug?
You can shut up, Mark. Before I change my fucking mind.
It's too fucking dangerous. Stop it.
I need you to put a tube in me.
-You're a...trained medic.
Ah, no, mate, no. No, no, that was,
that was two days in Belfast, man. Two fucking years ago.
Piece of piss. I put one in a few weeks ago.
What's your name?
-What's your name?
Jarhead. My right lung's collapsed. If you don't cut me...
stick this in my chest,
I'll stop breathing and die.
I've asked you once, I can't ask again. Just cut me.
Halfway, Tug. Fucking awesome.
It's like watching him mount his missus.
Oh, fucking hell... What the fuck am I doing?
Oh, fuck it.
Sod's law you get pinged on the way back anyhow.
MARK: Here, I thought I told you about not walking into a room
until you know how you're walking out of there.
OK. OK. You can fucking do this.
You can fucking do this.
You can fucking do this.
Oh, why the fuck not? You can fucking do this! Fuck it.
It's all right. I trust you.
Just go, right.
-Hey! Doctor coming down.
Ah, fuck's sake.
Thank fuck for that.
Right side. I need it released, now.
Fuck you, fucking fuck.
Where's my camera?
-I need my fucking photos.
-Oi, Tug. Hold him still, buddy.
-He's going to set off another...
-Stu, stop moving, mate.
-I need my fucking camera.
-All right, all right. We'll get your photos, just stop moving, please.
Hey, pal, cas evac.
Ken, you got a drink of water, mate, I'm fucking dying here.
No, no, no, I'm out, mate.
Tug? Have you got any water?
What? You want me to pop back and get some?
Casualty evacuation, ten minutes.
Barlow. Heads up.
-MARK: Thank fuck for that.
OK. You got it. OK.
-OK, next one.
-Cas evac, ten minutes. Yeah.
-Always fucking t...
Goddamn it! What the fuck is going on down there? Huh?
Ah! fuck it...
What is so fucking... Man!
Tug, Tug, fucking help me.
MEN CRY OUT
Fucking help me.
Ken, Ken, I'll get to you when I can, OK?
There's a tourniquet and a morphine pen, yeah.
-You know what you're fucking doing, lad.
Be with you in a minute, man. Be with you in a minute.
Tug, I need some fucking morphine.
I need some fucking morphine.
Yeah, I'm with you, Stu. I'm with you. Prosser!
-I think my lung's fucked.
I need you to lean on your side,
don't let any shit drain into the good one, yeah.
Lean up on that rock there.
Stu, have a pen, yeah?
Find somewhere soft, give it ten. That's your lot, all right?
What are we going to do with you?
All right, mate. All right, OK.
Where's the fucking blood going?
You're all right, pal. I got you.
..Stay with us now, OK?
Lad, it's all right. Yeah, take it easy now, all right.
Hold on a minute. Any minute the helicopter's going to come, right?
Stay with us, now, OK?
Prosser, are we ready?
All right, lads.
ZAP numbers on my say, yeah. Give the medics a head start.
Half a fucking job, Ken.
Could have done it a lot better myself, but it'll do for now.
-It still fucking hurts!
-You've had your left pin nipped off, pal.
It's meant to hurt, but the morphine'll kick in soon, yeah.
MEN GROAN AND PANT
Er. OK, OK, go.
All right, Stu. Go, pal.
-I cannae fucking remember.
-Don't be a fucking bender, Stu.
It's important information, it could save your fucking life, pal.
-Cool it, Mark, cool it, Mark, cool it.
Pearson, Corporal, SH, 3 Para...
P1, left fucking peg.
Sorry, sorry, wait, Papa what?
OK, and a, a left, what?
Jesus fucking Christ, anyone here speak gangsta?
Sorry. Right. Got it now.
Ken, you're up next, pal. Go on.
-How about you, mate? How you doing? BARLOW:
-Yeah, I'm all right. I think I might get a tan out of this, though.
Keep an eye on Stu, yeah. He's all over the fucking shop.
He's slamming the morphine sticks like they're fucking voddies.
How's it look?
Barlow, Fusilier, AL, 2RRF.
-AL? Thought you were called fucking Ken?
-Bravo 5376... P1.
My name's Andy.
-Why are you called Ken?
-Ah, don't be a spaz, Tug.
Ken fucking Barlow?
Ken fucking Barlow!
OK, OK, pal. All right, all right.
Here you are, Stu, pal. Let's get some water on board.
-What's your name, Scalie?
It's a shit nickname.
You do any better?
That's not a nickname.
Haley. I, er...
-I tried to get them to go for Halo.
-But Stu stuck.
what do they call the other Stu?
Someone needs to look at that.
It's all my fault, isn't it?
-It's not your fault, mate.
-Don't talk like that, mucker.
Think about getting out of here. Think about your family.
Yeah. Hey, yeah. Have you got any kids?
Hmm. Jimmy. He's, er, five. He's, he's a good kid. And...
-..and I got another one on the way...
You tell Shannon, yeah...
you tell her if it's a boy...
you fucking tell her to call him Alexander, yeah?
And if it's a girl, call her Sofia.
Would you do that mate, for me, yeah?
-I need you to fucking do that for me.
-Shut up! No, I'm not going to tell her that.
I'm not going to tell her anything.
Right, cos if I need to clear a route
with my bare fucking hands all the way to Camp Bastion
I'm getting you out of this gash pit. Do you hear me?
And it's not going to be, what is it, Sofia, fucking Alexander
it'll be fucking Smudge Junior, or Smudgella.
And I'll tell you something else, mush, you're going to fucking make selection, and all.
You're going to be the first fucking one-legged, bunny-hopping badge there's ever been, all right?
So none of this fucking platform four, self-pity fucking bullshit.
We spent too much BST getting you this far.
We haven't given up on you,
the least you could do is not give up on us, you cunt.
Jesus, Smudge, easy on.
-Shut the fuck up.
PEARSON SINGS UNINTELLIGIBLY
-Shit. Tug, it still fucking hurts.
The morphine will work, pal. You just got to give it time.
It's been a fucking hour, man.
It's been half an hour, Ken. Let me tell you something, Ken.
The more you shout, the faster your heartbeat, the quicker you'll bleed out.
All right, so for your own good, and ours, just shut your fucking jimmy, all right.
All right, Mark, I'm just going to have another look at this, yeah?
It's going to fucking hurt so bite down, mate.
Right, all of you. Just fucking...
ignore this next bit, yeah, ignore what I fucking say.
Jay, Smudge. I'm going to talk shit for a bit to keep things moving, all right?
Just fucking... Everyone fucking ignore what I say, OK?
Right, listen to me, you pricks!
We've been waiting for this chopper for three fucking hours.
And if it don't come soon,
and I'm talking NOW, people are going to start dying down here.
Minutes, all right, that's what we've fucking got.
You have to fucking sort it out!
C-Cas evac. How long?
Just going to catch 40 winks, lads.
-While Cathy gets her nails done.
-No fucking Kraut's getting this deckchair off me.
-Stu, don't go to sleep, man.
Unless they want a fucking set...
-Stu, you're talking shit, pal.
-I'm up, I'm up.
Fuck. I'm back in the room, lads. I'm back in the room.
I'd kill anybody right now for a cold tin of brew, so is.
That's it, mate. Cheerful fucking thoughts.
-Mark, you're getting married, so I hear.
-Hmm. Aye. November.
Just as well, lads, think my wanking days are over.
Might need to get my suit re-measured, though.
Think she'll fucking recognise me?
Course she fucking will.
You going to...you going to have a big piss-up afters?
Oh, you bet you. Er, Minto Hotel. Bells and whistles.
-If we get out of this, you, you lads are all coming, yeah.
Fucking cash bar(!)
Free bar, fuck, free bar.
Ah, fucking hell. That's diamond. I'm going to fucking go all out.
-I...I haven't been legless since February.
-You don't need to fucking worry about that any more, do you, Barlow?
Ah, I'm going to be fucking legless every night, now.
Hey, lads. I just realised, we don't need to worry about the third mine any more.
Good old Ken's fucking found it for us. Cheers, Ken!
Always getting dicked, mate.
MARK: The really funny thing is, boys...
they didn't get fucking planted here, they all just washed off the hill
and down to the river beds.
There could be fucking hundreds of them...
All around here. All around us.
-Great place for a fucking bimble, lads.
Quick snipe, then it's tea and fucking medals.
Cas evac, ten minutes.
what's his name... fucking, um, Jeffrey Dahmer?
-No. Two more.
-Jack the Ripper.
-No. Last guess, make it a good one.
-Come on, give me, give me some more...
-Eh? What did you say? "Rules is rules", Stu.
I just had my fucking leg blown off, mate.
Is that how it's going to be now? "Oh, my poor leg. Oi, lend us a quid, Smudge."
All right, fuck off.
Let's call it quits.
Harold fucking who?
Harold Shipman, the Doctor of Death.
No, I've never heard of him.
Of course you have. He killed, like, 200 people, maybe more.
-He's not, like, fucking world famous, is he?
-He's from your neck of the woods.
You know exactly who I'm talking about.
-Well, there's not a fucking plaque to him.
-He's up there. You'd be surprised.
We're never getting out of here.
-I reckon you made him up.
Kenneth Arthur Barlow.
-It still fucking hurts.
-Yeah, that's good, mucker.
If it's hurting it means you're alive, mate. All right?
Stu, punch your card.
-Fucking camera, pal.
I need more fucking morphine.
You take the pain, Stu. You're a big lad, you'll be all right.
No fucking snoozing, boys, yeah?
-Prosser? You with us?
Y... Yeah. Yeah.
Keep talking to me, Prosser.
Talk about what?
You tell me, pal.
We could talk about the weather.
Short, fucking conversation.
T-Tell you what,
I'm trying to think if I've had worse birthdays than this.
And I've had some shit ones.
When I was eight, my...
..mum and dad clean out fucking forgot.
All day long I was thinking, they're just pretending.
They're going to spring this monster fucking surprise on me.
Even when I'm having my tea
in the bath,
getting into fucking bed...
I'm thinking, oh, these guys are good.
Then they shut the door, turned out the lights
and that was it.
I cried like a burst fucking drain.
Then they came back in, though, yeah?
They fucking forgot.
But this is shitter.
Well, we can do something about that, can't we boys?
# Happy birthday to you! #
-Right, come on boys, Fucking loud, Stu.
-MEN: # Happy birthday to you...! #
MEN: # Happy birthday, David Prosser, happy birthday to you! #
One more time, boys, loud. Nice and loud, let him hear you.
MEN: # Happy birthday to you...! #
-Ken, let's hear you.
MEN: # Happy birthday to you!
# Happy birthday, David Prosser, happy birthday to you!
# Happy birthday to you. Happy bir... #
MARK: Tug. Stay on fucking target, man.
My leg still fucking hurts.
Tug, this fucking morphine isn't working.
There ain't no more, Ken.
-Tug, give me another stick.
MARK: Don't you fucking drop.
Just fucking give it me, pal.
Don't you drop, Stu. Don't you dare fucking drop.
You hang in there, mate.
You fucking hear me?
We're 3 Para and we're going to get through this together.
We are 3 fucking Para.
Remember the fucking history, boys.
Arnhem, Mount Longdon.
Fucking Kajaki, now.
We are 3 fucking Para.
Don't you dare fucking drop.
We are 3 fucking Para.
Utrinque Paratus. "Ready for fucking anything".
You fucking hear me?
-# Oh, Lancashire is wonderful!
# Oh, Lancashire is wonderful!
# It's full of tits
# Fanny and wanderers
# Oh, Lancashire is wonderful... #
There we go.
That's it, pal.
-I'm good. I'm finished. Fucking...
It's disgusting, man.
Hey, give us a minute, man.
I think I've got a bottle of champagne in the fucking bag.
Looks like you're out of luck, mate.
My mum always said I was born under a lucky star.
Kept on winning things, you know, like raffles and stuff.
I won her a pair of diamond earrings at the Sabre Centre.
She always wore them when I came home.
And I've always felt lucky.
-You're no' fucking wrong, Mark.
You're the luckiest guy I know, mate.
You could sail through a shit storm, buddy
and come out smelling of fuckin' roses. Eh?
-There you go.
You'll come out of this as well, too, pal.
I think my luck's run out, guys.
No, pal, you just gotta... you just gotta hold on.
Just hold on, pal.
I'm cold, Tug.
I'm fucking cold.
Not long now, Mark. We'll have you out of here.
I'm going, I can feel it, I'm fucking dying...
No, you're...you're not.
-No, you're not. You're all right... Fine.
Tell Gill that I love her.
Tell her I want her to be happy...
want her to marry some other fella.
I ain't fuckin'... Shut up with all that shit now.
Tell my mum and dad that I love them.
Tell them have a piss-up on me at the Minto.
No cash bar.
Tell them to look after my dog.
-You fuckin' getting this?
-I'm with you.
-Shut the fuck up, Mark.
This time next week, mate...
..we're going to be drinking cold lager in the Fox, buddy.
Telling our fuckin' war stories.
Impressin' the fuckin' locals, eh?
Tell my uncle that I died being a good soldier, eh?
A good Para.
Would do, mate, but you're not fuckin' dying, eh, you big squeeze.
-We'll get you out of here...
Just fuckin' hold on, pal. Eh?
You hold on.
Fuck! Fuck! No!
Tell him it's a fuckin' minefield!
-It's a minefield.
-It's a fucking minefield!
Fuckin' minefield! Hey!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! No!
It's a fuckin' minefield! Watch your step.
Hang on! Wait till your guys know. It's a minefield.
Right. Right guys, come on. Let's get him over there now.
-See you fuckin' soon, man. All right?
-Give me my fucking rifle!
Watch your heads, right, lads! Watch your fuckin' heads!
-'Alpha, we're extracting the...LZ...zero point.'
-'On point. Copy that.'
Over here, critical!
He's got a bad bleed on the right side.
All right, Mark?
Mark! You with me?
You're up! You're up! OK, got him.
-Prepare to change.
-Let's get this guy loaded on.
This guy's a fuckin' hero.
Stu? Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
-Is he OK?
-He's going to be all right, buddy.
Out... Stop. Right, take over. And away.
Did they all get out?
Yes, Mark. They all got out.
Mark? Mark? Crash!
-Any of you who were in there
I want you down on the HLS. Get yourselves checked out.
# Here's a new place, here are new faces
# And yet you are all that I see
# There is your T-shirt
# There is your jacket and that's how your hair used to be
# Come with me through the sand and the snow
# Run with me as the rain starts to flow
# I'll dream of you every night
# And I'll love you for all of my life
# You will be close as we all make a toast to the good times
# The new and the old
# Sharing the night, we all laughed
# Till we cried at the stories and jokes that you told
# Stand with us as we all reunite
# Dance with us till the sky becomes light
# We'll think of you every night
# And we'll love you for all of our lives
# I can't pretend I felt fine at the end
# As I watched you walk out and leave
# But I hear your voice as you made your choice and said
# This is the life for me
# We hear your laugh in the stories we tell
# Remember your smile as you waved us farewell
# We'll think of you every night
