Kim Wilde – Cambodia – 1981


    Well he was 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 couldn’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 Cambodia

    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 a year has passed
    And not a single word
    And all the love she knew
    Has disappeared out in the haze
    (Cambodia, don’t cry now, no tears now)

    And now the years have passed
    With not a single word
    But there is only one thing left
    I know for sure
    She won’t see his face again
