Meant for More
Misty Straus / Terry Radigan

lyrics

When you're eighteen
You don't think about much
Just what you're gonna buy
With that hundred bucks
The future, it was Friday night
I'd do what Mama did
And I'd be alright
But somehow I knew
I was meant for more
I didn't know what
But I was sure

So, on my eighteenth birthday
Signed the dotted line
Army boot camp
Goldie Hawn
Hey what the hell is going on
But I did my part
For twenty years
The drills
The kids
And my career
I wanted to serve
But there had to be more
Didn't know what
But I was sure

And I might not have been sure
About a lot of things
Maybe every now and then
A little doubt crept in
But I kept on going
From pole to pole
Sea to sea
First Sargent
Was the job for me
It's what I was born to do
To serve, to love, to see it through
I always knew
I was meant for more
Didn't know what
But I was sure

And you know that I ain't done
There's a whole lot
More where that came from
