Another Hero Is Headed Home
Lyrics and Music by Stephen Rew
© 2012

I was looking through some photographs
Of friends who've gone before,
Every one a story there to tell,
Of happy times, and love so strong
It would take your breath away,
And each one of those memories I knew well.

But now life is not so long,
And the body's not that strong...
You just turn around and they're gone...
Another hero...is headed home.

The measure of a man ain't what he takes,
It's what he gives, and what he makes,
A life, a love throughout the years.
By the time a man has grown so wise,
He's kept his eyes upon the prize,
A gentle grace has washed away his fears.

But now life is not "so long,"
And the body's not that strong,
You just turn around and he's gone...
Another hero...is headed home.

And faith is all he's left to you,
But it's enough to see you through...
'Cause one day you'll turn around and you'll be gone...
Another hero..is headed home.

But now life is not "so long,"
'Cause this body's not that strong,
One day you'll turn around and you'll be gone...
Another hero..is headed home.

Another hero..Has made it home.
