Not Your Average Deployment Playlist

During my husband’s past four deployments and other various military separations, the thing that’s kept us connected the most is music. From CDs to Spotify accounts, our methods have changed, but the tradition and idea of a deployment playlist has not.

He makes a playlist, I make a playlist, and we exchange them, and it keeps us going while he’s away. This article will be short and to the point and will be all about highlighting our go-to going-away favorites. Give a listen and pair them with a good tub of Ben and Jerrys or some Chardonnay. Enjoy!

“The Wind” by Zac Brown Band 

“Close your eyes, babe

Take a breath

Say my name and I’ll be there

My love will find you anywhere 

Anywhere, my love”

“Home We’ll Go” by Steve Akoi

“So take my hand and home we’ll go”

“Vanilla Twilight” by Owl City

“The silence isn’t so bad,

Til I look at my hands and feel sad

Because the spaces between my fingers 

Are right where yours fit perfectly”

“Slide” by Goo Goo Dolls

“I wanna wake up where you are.

I won’t say anything at all”

“Take on me” by A-ha (acoustic)

“Today’s another day to find you

Shying away

I’ll be coming for your love, okay?”

“Hold on” by Walk of the Earth

“When we’re apart I’m a perm without a curl

‘Cause ever since we started you’ve been an ocean to my pearl”

“Get to Me” by Train 

“I look around at what I got 

Without you it ain’t a lot

I got everything 

With you everything”

“I’d Do Anything” by Simple Plan

“Another day is going by

I’m thinking about you

All the time

But you’re out there

And I’m here waiting”

“Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show

“But I’m a hoping for Raleigh, 

I can see my baby tonight”

“If I Ever Leave This World Alive” by Flogging Molly

“Wherever I am you’ll always be

More than just a memory”

Jamie All Over- Mayday Parade

“Please don’t tell me 

That I’m dreaming 

When all I ever wanted was to 

Dream another sunset with you”

“Come On Get Higher” by Matt Nathanson

“I miss the sound of your voice 

And I miss the rush of your skin

And I miss the still of the silence 

As you breathe out and I breathe in”

“I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz

“I won’t give up on us

God knows I’m tough enough

We got a lot to learn

God knows we’re worth it”

“Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes

“Home, let me come home, 

Home is wherever I’m with you”

“It’s Always Better When We’re Together” by Jack Johnson

“It’s always better when we’re together

Yeah, we’ll look at the stars when we’re together”

“The Call” by Regina Spekter

“Pick a star on the dark horizon

And follow the light

You’ll come back when it’s over

No need to say goodbye”

“Tightrope” by The Greatest Showman Soundtrack

“Mountains and valleys, and all that will come in between

Desert and ocean

You pulled me in and together we’re lost in a dream

Always in motion

So I risk it all just to be with you

And I risk it all for this life we choose”

“Oh My Stars” by Andrew Belle

“If everything you’ve said to me has been true

Then all my stars are leading me to you”

“Say Hey” by Michael Franti

“Hey I be gone today

But I be back around the way

Seems like everywhere I go

The more I see

The less I know

But I know one thing,

That I love you”

“Fire and the Flood” by Vance Joy 

“Since we met I feel a lightness in my step

You’re miles away but I still feel you

Anywhere I go there you are”

And that’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this little peek into the hub’s and my little deployment bubble, and I hope it gave you some inspiration for your own. I would love to hear some of your favorites. Drop them in the comments, and I’ll give them a listen!

And remember. You’re strong, beautiful, and brave. You’ve got this.

Supporting Our Military Children

Supporting Our Military Children

One thing that has been most important to me, as a military spouse, is figuring out how to best do this life while supporting our children with the changes and difficulties. When my children were very small, there were many times that my husband was away, and I had to parent my children alone.
