lyrics

QUICKSAND
Katie Dowell / Darden Smith

I’m a farmer’s daughter, I was a rodeo queen
But I’m a soldier now with a different dream
I want you to love me for who I am
Cause right now it feels like I’m trying to make a stand
In quicksand

I’ve known for more than half of my life
Now you’re my husband and I’m your wife
I think you still see me like the girl next door
But baby I’m so much more

I’ve been around the world, I’ve been to war
I’ve seen things worth fighting for
I love my country, I love what I do
Baby if you let me I can love you too

I try to talk and you don’t say a word
Love should easier so I’ve heard
The struggles of combat I’ve got to admit
Are nothing compared to this

I still believe in the two of us
But it’s getting harder and harder to trust
That you’re gonna be there when I need you

I’m a farmer’s daughter, I was a rodeo queen
But I’m a soldier now with a different dream
I want you to love me for who I am
Cause right now it feels like I’m trying to make a stand
I’m reaching out my hand
In quicksand
