Bring him home


Something that pumps the adreneline higher
He loves being a firefighter
Everytime I hear the alarm
My heart drops, fear of harm
My hopes and dreams up in flames
God tell me how I would handle the pain
To lose the love of my life
Would cut me deeper than a knife
I sit and wonder 'Tonight a Hero'
Or that hero's time to go
To have him taken from me
Because he so much believed
To put his life up for another
Whether it a stranger or a brother
No matter what the call
He gives his best, He gives it all
Please watch over him tonight
Another fire, Another cry, Another fight
Whatever the call may be
Just Bring him back home to me
