Lyrics

Heroine

Written By: Steven Bush

A hometown hero on his third tour
Maybe by the fourth he’ll know what he’s fighting for
Says the military has taught him everything
All of life’s great lessons and the pain it brings
And the pain that it brings

A brand new officer hits the streets
His training can’t prepare him for the types he’ll meet
Somebody’s got to do it; it might as well be me
He’s got a daughter, a mother, and his bride-to-be
They planned on starting a family

So we give and we take all these hearts that break in love and war
Heaven knows to trust in those that find something worth dying for
That found something worth dying for

He’s got a girl and she’s waiting by the phone
She’s praying every night and day that he’s coming home
And mama’s got nightmares of a folded flag
A flag-draped casket and a body bag

With every hero comes a heroine (x4)

He’s got a girl and she’s waiting by the phone
She’s praying every night and day that he’s coming home
And mama’s got nightmares of a folded flag
A flag-draped casket and a body bag

My sweet widow
Hold your head up high
Oh sweet widow
Darling, don’t you cry

My sweet widow
It’s the price of pride
And glory for
The stars and the stripes

The stars and the stripes [x4]

The Sinister and the Saved

Written By: Steven Bush

Lord, save me from myself
I got fears and doubts and I need something else
Faith don’t fail me now
Send a sign and lift me up somehow

Been searching for so long
Trying to find a place where I belong
Between the sinister and the saved
Tempted by sin but the saints forgave

Fall from grace now – I fall from grace
Fall from grace now – I fall from grace
No pearly gates now – I fall from grace
Fall from grace now – I fall from grace

Lord, send the light of day
In this darkness I can’t find my way
Bend but please don’t break
Lord, save my soul for the heaven’s sake

Hells not far below
I got front-row seats for the devil’s show
Between the sinister and the saved
Tempted by sin but the saints forgave

Fall from grace now – I fall from grace
Fall from grace now – I fall from grace
No pearly gates now – I fall from grace
Fall from grace now – I fall from grace
Fall from grace
[x2]
