lyrics

Shawn & Kate Thomas / Mary Gauthier

He proposed at the gun range, it was my birthday surprise
We got married fast, tied the knot on the 4th of July
By September he was gone for nine months, oceans away
I stayed busy as I could but I cried almost every day

She knew from day one saving lives is what I’m here to do
I’m Army, EOD, and I love my work thru and thru
I’d have left it if she asked but I knew she never would
She understands our sacrifice serves a greater good

One day we’ll travel with the seasons
In the summer we’ll go north and catch some fish
In the winter we’ll ride south on the Victory to the desert just to kiss
Anything is easier than living like this

When Wade got killed we lost more than our best friend
Then we lost Nick and we went thru it all again
We saw their names go on the wall, watched the flags changing hands
Now there’s a hole in our family it goes on and on and it never ends

One day we’ll travel with the seasons
In the summer go north and catch some fish
In the winter ride south on the Victory to the desert just to kiss
Anything is easier than living like this
One day it will be easier than living like this
