      A Soldier's Prayer

      Lord I pray from day to day
      To help me understand
      How Americans view their heroes
      And how they judge a man

      If being someone famous
      Is looked upon with awe
      Something's wrong here with our values
      What are we fighting for

      I'm in the military
      And proud of what I do
      But I need to feel some strength and love
      That's why I pray to you

      Some of our families left us
      And now as years have passed
      I feel the burden and the stress
      For each day could be our last

      I'm in the field of combat
      With bullets surrounding me
      There are few that care
      for those who've died
      Protecting those born free

      I'm asking for some comfort
      Some support, and one thing more
      To get RESPECT and HONOR
      From the Americans we fought for

      You and I are the heroes
      Fighting for our land to be free
      And 'tho no one has heard our names
      We're the heroes you and me

      Our awards weren't televised
      No speech with tears in our eyes
      Why is our country too blind to see
      That the heroes will always be
      Those of us who fought for peace
      We're the heroes you and me

      Those of us who fought for peace
      We're the heroes you and me
