Darden Smith / Zaak & Marlena Thibodeaux

I’ve had so many sleepless nights
I’d stare at the screen and cry
I’d still see Afghanistan
See the faces of my friends
Images don’t go away
Like it happened yesterday

Selfless, selfless
The shield against the storm
Keeping all from harm
Why do we lose the best

Broken glass and loaded guns
I thought my race could not be won
Then you came into my life
My friend my savior and my wife
I pray that you won’t go away
You’re the light in all my days

Selfless, selfless
My shield against the storm
In your loving arms
I can finally rest

If everyone understood
That giving is the greatest good
A lot less pain a lot less grief
A lot more love and a lot more peace

Selfless, selfless
In the raging storm
Keeping us from harm
Those that give their best
Selfless, selfless
