lyrics

Darden Smith / Zaak & Marlena Thibodeaux

You tell me I don’t understand
Your right I don’t think I can
But I can love you all the same
Even in the middle of your pain

You opened my eyes
You opened my heart
To sacrifice
That’s where it starts
It never ends
Cause everyday
We start again
In so many ways
You opened my eyes
You opened my eyes

I was just a hometown girl
Didn’t know a thing about your world
The uniform, the strength, the nerve
And what it takes to really serve

Til you opened my eyes
You opened my heart
To sacrifice
That’s where it starts
It never ends
Cause everyday
We start again
In so many ways
You opened my eyes
You opened my eyes

Now I know how to live
How to rise above
What it means to really love

You opened my eyes
You opened my heart
To sacrifice
That’s where it starts
It never ends
Everyday
We start again
In so many ways
You opened my eyes
You opened my eyes

You opened my eyes

You opened my eyes
