Hello world, hope you're listening
Forgive me if I'm young or speaking out of turn
But there's someone I've been missing
And I think that they could be the better half of me

They're in the wrong place tryin' to make it right
But I'm tired of...

    This is an elaboration of what the anonymous person above me said. It's a song about how war tore apart a relationship, and how the man and woman tried to make their overseas relationship work out, but to no avail. The only way for their relationship to survive would be to send the soldier home.

    Its about troops in Iraq. Generally speaking, there are many family members and significant other in Iraq fighting a war that the song writer is clearly portraying is drawn out. It begins by talking about missing someone, making it a love song, and also says "they're in the wrong place trying to make it right", which is what troops are trying to do: calm down the violence in Baghdad and Afghanistan. Saying that "hopefully the hate subsides so love can begin" implies that the song writer thinks if we want the violence to subside, we need to stop fueling the fire.
