In the midst of a battlefield,
I am an army of one,
I fight this war with gun on my hips,
Aiming to pull the trigger,
With prayers on my lips.
Because I rather it be you than me,
Even though I walk through the shadow of death,
I’m ready to defeat the enemy.
Approaching the front line I face my fears,
God is on my mind,
And my eyes are full of tears.
My spirit knows what doesn’t kill me,
Makes me stronger,
With God, I can make it,
If I endure the hardships and conquer the pain,
Just a little while longer,
Lord knows I can take it.
In this war of love,
I take shots at the chest,
And this wall I hold up,
Becomes a shield that protects me.
When I feel like the air is too thick,
And the rumors become like atomic gasses and shorten my breath,
I decree and declare the Lord reigns.
I overcome my hardships and pains.
