THANK YOU  is dedicated to all of our troops, past and present - With love and appreciation, Lizzie

It all started at 2 in the morning
when you left the place you call home
All it took was the wave of your little son's hand
to stay safe, wherever you may roam

Now, I don't know what it's like to be on the other side
but i do know that it's not easy to say goodbye

So, thank you for all your strength
Thank you for saving me
and the lives of the people we love
Thank you for being there
when you could've gone anywhere
and been a normal man
Thank you for fighting for me

You sent letters to your house on the corner
and hoped for the same in return
When you finally got that note with your wife's perfect writing
and Jimmy's name, he wrote with a hand so firm

you pressed it to your heart, and felt all that she said
you opened up the letter, and carefully read

Thank you for all your strength
Thank you for saving me
and the lives of the people we love
Thank you for being there
when you could've gone anywhere
and been a normal man
Thank you for fighting for me

After 10 struggling months 
you finally came home
to your family so sweet, you've missed all along
When you went to church on Sunday you found
all the people from your little town saying

Thank you for all your strength
and thank you for saving me
and the lives of the people we love
and thank you for being there
when you could've gone anywhere
and been a normal man
Thank you for fighting
Thank you for fighting
Thank you for fighting for... for me
