lyrics

Mary Gauthier / Mona Goodrum

They said, “You won’t get to heaven if you take your own life.”
They said, “There won’t be peace for you on the other side.”
That’s what they taught me, ever since I was child
They said, “You won’t get to heaven if you take your own life.”

But sometimes all I think about is wanting to die
All I can do is hold on, pray for strength, hit my knees and cry
She was right there in front of me, then gone, in the blink of an eye
Now I’m scared I won’t get to heaven if I take my own life

I pray that God has mercy on her soul
I pray that God will help me let her go
I pray to let the past be in the past
Don’t let two good soldiers die in that blast

I’m thankful for my grandbabies now there’s a different kind of love
When they wrap their arms around me, I thank heaven above
A lifetime in that moment, and the whole world suddenly feels right
And I don’t think bout death or taking my own life

I pray that God has mercy on her soul
I pray that God will help me let her go
I pray to let the past be in the past
Don’t let two good soldiers die in that blast
Please don’t let two good soldiers die in that blast
