Lyrics

Little Soldier Girl

Written By: Phill Petty

She dreams of a better day; and she cries in a different way
She sees in a brighter light; and she sleeps in a darker night

And I dream with you too; cause you know I believe in you
And when all hope is lost just close your eyes and dream again

Rest your eyes little soldier girl; sleep in peace tonight
Fight for me little soldier girl; follow your dreams for me

As she lays somewhere all alone she feels she’ll never go home
But today she feels something more: what else is worth fighting for

And I dream with you too; kneeling in starlight I pray for you
Will you ever hear me singing your song from far away

Rest your eyes little soldier girl; sleep in peace tonight
Fight for me little soldier girl; follow your dreams for me

I know how hard this is to take
You’re way to strong for them to break
When you’ve done all you can you’ll find yourself again
Close your eyes remember who you are
You are the light in the dark

Rest your eyes little soldier girl; sleep in peace tonight
Fight for me little soldier girl; follow your dreams for me
Hold your thoughts little soldier girl; save your strength tonight
In the morning you’ll take up your arms fighting for freedom to dream

The Man You Never Knew

Written By: Phill Petty

I know there’s somewhere else I could be
But you’re somewhere near
And yes I believed in you along
I just wish that I knew before tonight
And now that I’m here
I know that I’m out of place
I always am but sometimes it’s so hard for me to be myself
And this time it cost me every dream and everything I’ve ever had
And my last wish in life is for you to forgive the man you never knew
But you’ll never listen to any word or any song I write for you
That’s the price I’ll be paying for the rest of my life
Now I’ll never know what our children would look like
Would she have your smile
Would he have my eyes
Now I’ll never see you in your white gown walking to me
Now I’ll never know what it’s like to be home
I’ll never be the one that you cry to
And when you are old I’ll still be wishing and praying
To show you the man you never knew
The man the man you never knew
The man I know I am
