The Brave


you live your lives

not knowing what's in store

you rush into a fire, in hopes of saving

what's behind the burning door

you never think twice, you just do

what has to be done 

at the first tone of your pager

your up and ready to run

its your job at first but then it 

begins to go deeper than that

it becomes more than your black boots

your heavy coat or your smoke covered hat

you put your life on the line

to save another

you do it for someone you don't know

in the same way you would if it were your mother

you give your all and try your best

hoping it will do 

so no matter what the out come is just remember

they don't come any braver than you
