Lyrics

The Soldier in the Pass

Written By: Samuel C. Garrison

Verse 1-Gray haired, wrinkled, bent and worn
You helped me to get through the storm.
A heart of courage, full of love
The stuff that heroes are made of

Verse 2- You washed my clothes in freezing cold
Then ironed them dry in time for school
You did without or just made do
I hope that I can be like you

Chorus-Now it all seems so clear to me
Growing up there were things I couldn't see
You gave your life to give a life to me
You were the soldier in the pass at Thermopylae

Verse 3- I think of all you could have done
The dreams you had when you were young
You put me first before your dreams
You loved me more than those it seems

Chorus-Yeah, it all seems so clear to me.
Looking back, there were things I couldn't see.
You gave your life to give a life to me.
You were the soldier in the pass at Thermopylae.

Bridge-Now at last the end has come for you.
Hold up your head, the fight you fought is through.
Within the pass you stood alone for me,
to give me time to claim the victory.

Verse 4-Some peoples' heroes rode a horse.
Some rode in a plane, of course.
Some played in the Superdome.
My Mom, my hero, was at home.

Chorus- Now it all seems so clear to me.
Growing up there were things I couldn't see.
You gave your life to give a life to me.
You were the soldier in the pass at Thermopylae.
Like the soldier back then you gave your all for me.
You'll always be my hero, Mom!

Missing You

Written By: Samuel C. Garrison

verse 1-Pass gently through my dreams, walk softly on my mind as I lie here.
I can feel your caresses, I can hear your soothin' voice oh so clear.
I can hear the faint echo of your footsteps fadin' down empty hallways.
Oh my darlin', your sweet, sweet kisses will be with me always.

verse 2-I wake in the mornin' callin' out your name like you were here.
I search through the closet smellin' the perfume you used to wear.
I glance out the window lookin' for your car in the empty driveway.
It's as sad and lonely as a wooden cross along the highway.

chorus-I'm just goin' through the motions, I'm goin' on down the line.
Your memory takes no prisoners, I'm dyin' now inside.
I think of all the lovin' things that you used to do.
Oh my love, I'm missin, missin, missin you.

I turn to telll you somethin' that happened yesterday, but you're not there.
I look at your picture and see the favorite dress you used to wear.
As I go out the door I remember all the hugs that you gave me.
I get the smotherin' feelin' it won't ever be like it used to be.

bridge-Time drags by without you near.
Birds still sing, but I can't hear.
All my world, all my life,
Has changed from color to black and white.

chorus-I'm just goin' through the motions, I'm goin' on down the line.
Your memory takes no prisoners, I'm dyin' now inside.
I think of all the lovin' things that you used to do.
Oh my love, I'm missin', missin', missin' you.
Yes my love, I'm missin', missin', missin' you.
