Made It Out Alive
Search a place where the enemy hides.
Hearing the cries of children scared.
Bullets begin flying through the air.
Praying they don't hit me, God I'm scared.
My buddies hit the ground.
I yell, "Keep your heads down!"
Explosions all around.
People screaming, what a sound.
There's nothing we can do but stay down.
Faces planted in the ground.
Help is coming, I hear it overhead.
I pray "God I don't want to be dead"
Machine guns firing, so we can fight back!
Guns firing Rat, tat, tat.
My buddies screaming time to fall back.
Have to leave before another attack.
Helicopters land so you can leave.
Running so hard, can barely breathe.
I fought for my life today.
Tears fall down my face, didn't know what to say.
We survived another fight.
So glad to sleep in my cot tonight.
We made it out alive to fight again.
We are just waiting for the orders of when.
