Another day or so he'd be one year older
God bless his soul
Nearly 18 years old when he became a soldier
God bless his soul

It's not like he didn't know
The way that things could go
Hope was all he had to cope
But he never made it home

I hope and pray
That when God called his name
He did not die in vain
I'd like to think he died for you and me

And I hope one day
When we look back again
And he's just a memory
That we'll appreciate, respect the life he gave

In another year or so she might have been a mother
God bless her soul
But she'll never get to hold her baby girl, I know her
God bless their souls

It's not like she didn't know
The way that things could go
Hope was all she had to cope
But she never made it home

I hope and pray
That when God called her name
She did not die in vain
I'd like to think she died for you and me

And I hope one day
When we look back again
And she's just a memory
That we'll appreciate, respect the life she gave

And I hope and pray
That when God called their name
That they did not die in vain
I'd like to think that they died for you and me

And I hope one day
When we look back again
And they're just a memory
That we'll appreciate, respect the life they gave

Respect the life they gave
Respect the life they gave
