17 Stand (Produced by Sean Divine)

It's been a while since basic training /
all my memories of you playing /
on the swing set /
baby girl I ain't expect you to get so big yet /
i hate that I'm missing this time with you /
baby girl I gotta lay it on the line with you /
what I'm doing I'm doing for the safety of my country /
protecting you from the people that hunt me /
you hearing that this war aint necessary /
if it means protecting you. It's a burden I'll surely carry /
I may not look the same if I come back to you /
may be hard to face you I may have to keep my back to you /
I may not be able to hold you with both arms /
as long as I'm here I know you're safe from harm /
how's mommy? I hope y'all are making memories I'd be jealous of /
when I get back I'm keep you to myself with this jealous love

Baby girl, love of my life /
hopefully I can make it home in one piece let alone alive /
I know you taking good care of house and home /
you a soldier yourself how you hold it down alone /
you're perfect in every sense of the word /
I'm doing okay, I'm surviving thank you for your concern /
try your best to live your life while I'm gone /
cause If I don't make home you gotta continue on /
continue fighting harder than I ever could
Playing Mom and Dad carrying burdens I know I should
Understand, We fighting for our life
I’m a soldier I'm fighting for my life
Weapon in hand, I gotta make the world safe
As the mother I see the pain in your face
Don’t you wait for me, don’t you stay for me
I’m saying no matter if I make it home
I pray love finds its way to you and you’re never alone
