about

A Better Man
Robert “Buck” Rogers / Mary Gauthier

lyrics

The better part of thirty years, a willing volunteer
I was a soldier, EOD, war after war
I did my job day after day I hid my pain away
Saving lives is what I was fighting for

I was spinning all around headed for the cold hard ground
I got lost without a compass or a choice
Fighting wars in my sleep consumed in my grief
‘til I leaned into the safety of your voice

You’re my rock, my better half
You’re the one who makes me laugh
You believe in something bigger than us all
You hold me up when I can’t stand
When I’m lost you take my hand
You make me a better man

You’re the mother of my boy you’re my pride and joy
My family, you’re the center of my life
You turned my house into a home I’m so glad I’m not alone
So grateful you’re my woman you’re my wife

You’re my rock, my better half
You’re the one who makes me laugh
You believe in something bigger than us all
You hold me up when I can’t stand
When I’m lost you take my hand
You make me a better man
