lyrics

LIFE OUTSIDE THE WIRE
Sam Stitt / Jennifer Stitt / Jay Clementi

Three gun trucks rolling down the dusty pot-hole road
It’s quiet and he knows hell’s gonna break loose in the hot zone
Completely on their own a twelve man fire team
Cut off from support surrounded by an enemy they can’t see

Alone in the dark taking fire
That’s life outside the wire

Gotta be strong, you gotta keep moving on
Living life through pictures
Getting strength through scripture
Keeping his head down doing his job
Leaning on a power that’s higher
That’s life outside the wire

She tries not to think about missing her best friend
She keeps the home fire burning not knowing when the war’s gonna end
Is my forever ever gonna make it back home
The kids are needing their daddy they can’t do this alone

She’s a faithful heart taking fire
That’s a wife outside the wire

Gotta be strong, you gotta keep moving on
Living life through pictures
Getting strength through scripture
She’s a part-time dad and a full-time mom
Leaning on a power that’s higher
That’s life outside the wire

Their prayers were answered and their journey has an end
From outside the wire they’ve safely moved back in
There’s still work to do but their hearts are still the same
There’s nothing they can’t do, there’s nothing they can’t change

Cause they’re strong, they keep moving on
Cherishing their pictures
Getting strength through scripture
Growing together through it all
Leaning on a power that’s higher
Made it through life outside the wire
