Somebody Who Would Die for You
by Tracy Lawrence



He was begging at the mini mart
Who'd have guessed he had a purple heart
Scars underneath his bearded chin
I bet you don't remember him

'Cause you were running twenty minutes late
And he was only getting in your way
But when you brushed by that wounded soul last Thursday afternoon
You met somebody who would die for you

The phone rang at eight last night
Who'd call at such a crazy time
Getting kids into bath and bed
"I can't talk" is about all you said

All he wanted was a Saturday
Morning conversation down at Baker's cafe
You weren't thinking when you told your dad
"Try back in a week or two"
But you hurt somebody who would die for you

Somebody who cares so much
They'd gladly give it all up
If that's what they had to do
It runs deeper than flesh and blood
Heaven knows no greater love
Than the sacrifice they make to see you through
Somebody who would die for you

Just another Colorado day
Morning practice for a high school play
From out of nowhere, the bullets came fast
They shattered more than the library glass

They asked her if she believed in Your name
And she didn't even hesitate
God, I can't help but wondering if I'd been in her shoes
Would I be somebody who would die for You

Somebody who cared so much
They'd gladly give it all up
If it's what they had to do
It runs deeper than flesh and blood
Heaven knows no greater love
Than the sacrifice You make to see us through
Your Son died for me, would I be
Somebody who would die for You
