What I'm Fighting For



Olivia came to me tonight with her ipod in hand and said, "mom, I found a good song for you to listen to." She played it for me and it's a good song.  One that would be good for Rodney to hear.  Below are the lyrics to the song, above is the music video.  I won't sing it for you, sorry.  It's called "This Is What I'm Fighting For" by Steven Curtis Chapman.


This Is What I'm Fighting For:
I watch another sun fall on the desert sand
And slowly I can feel the ache returning to my heart
I heard somebody say today we lost a man
And everybody's got their own opinion
On whether it's a good or bad thing we're doing over here

But there's a little girl in Georgia lying in her bed tonight
While her mother holds her close and whispers, "It's gonna be alright"
And they'll pray themselves to sleep
And dream about the day when I'll come walking back through the door
'Cause this is what I'm fighting for

We passed another playground on the road today
A little group of girls looked up and waved at us and smiled
I think it's in their eyes I see the biggest change
Still everybody's got their own opinion
I can see the good and bad but when I close my eyes...

I see a little girl in Georgia lying in her bed tonight
While her mother holds her close and whispers, "It's gonna be alright"
And they'll pray themselves to sleep
And dream about the day when I'll come walking back through the door
'Cause this is what I'm fighting for

I know everybody's got their own opinion
I'm just here to do my job and I can't wait to get home
To that little girl in Georgia lying in her bed tonight
While her mother holds her close and whispers, "It's gonna be alright"
So I'll pray myself to sleep and dream about the day when I'll go running back through that door
Back to what I'm fighting for
This is what I'm fighting for
