Our lives are like movies in a way, and they have soundtracks all their own. What is your life's soundtrack like? For me, the songs and poems I write are part the soundtrack of my life. Sometimes they tell the story, sometimes they only set the mood, but they are always an integral part of it.

Lyrics

Anthem (Daddy's Comin' Home)

Written By: Crystal Reddell

She'll watch him walk away a thousand times
Thinking, "This could be the one..."
She'll lose count of all the nights
Lonely leaves her all undone
And the baby waves good-bye
As she tells him not to cry--
Daddy always comes back home.

Strange how time stands still while he is gone
She just does the best she can
Life won't wait 'til he gets home
And they're a family once again
And she dries the baby's eyes
But she won't let him see her cry--
Not 'til Daddy comes back home.

She's the one this country's built upon
She's the rock, she's the foundation of our land
But she's not always strong
She needs someone to lean upon
While she prays every night, "God please protect my man"
And He hears her every time
And His comfort is divine
This time, Daddy's comin' home

She'll watch him walk away a thousand times
Thinking, "This could be the one..."
