I am maybe half the man I was before the war
Sometimes I can’t find the simple words I’m looking for
Somehow friends and family always seem to have my back
To help me on my way and make up for what I lack

I may seem too humble, maybe that’s just me
I first learned to see my worth in school for EOD
I still did the foolish things that most young people do
I found a partner for my life the day that I found you
I may have been a pompous ass when we first met
But I just wasn’t ready for a woman like you yet

I am living proof there is some higher power
After all the foolish things I’ve done
I can see now that everything’s connected
And in this higher power we are one

My family’s everything to me
The meaning of my life
I want to grow old enough to take care of my wife
The way she takes good care of me
Each and every day
I want to be there for her in my own special way
I’m a husband, I’m a father, I’m a soldier, and a friend
I’m a grandfather now and it’s all because of them

There is living proof for a higher power
All these things we get to share in life
Every little thing is even more connected
I see it in my children and my wife
I sing it and it sets my spirit free
The only thing they need from me is me
Sing it like a preacher sings a hymn
All I really need from them is them

There is living proof for that higher power
Everywhere you look it’s all around
From the young and old
Every day and hour
Living in the precious love we’ve found
Living proof that love is all around
