godgyrl- The song is about a young soldier who is a little nervous to go to war, so he asks his waitress if he can write her letters. Through the letters they fall in love, then he says he can't write anymore. At the football game she realizes he was one of the soldiers who was killed.

I love this song, even if it makes me very sad. I have a personal experience that's very similar to this song, and every time I hear it this song makes me want to cry.
