Solider

As I have mentioned many times, Gavin DeGraw is my favorite singer. I remember the first time I heard one of his songs. I was sitting on Nathan's bed in high school watching a new show called One Tree Hill and the opening credits came on and this song caught my attention. I waited until the show was over and wrote down the name of the song and artist from the credits - "I Don't Wanna Be" by Gavin DeGraw. To this day it is my favorite song. Not too long after that Gavin did a concert at Arkansas Tech and Nathan took me. I was hooked. He is not very mainstream but does have alot of fans. I always love it when he puts out a new CD. I usually end up liking every song, and there is always one that stands out to me. With this last cd that was Solider, by far.

Solider it a song about loving someone so much that you will do anything for them, anything. Being a solider for someone in their life it such a strong thing to do, and also have done for you in return. This song makes me think of a couple of relationships in my life. I think that this song describes what God feels for us. He obviously would do anything for us and protects us. I would do the same for Noah and Baby Stillwell as well as Nathan. Being a parent I now can easier recognize that my parents did this for me. Everyone has that inspirational song, and this one is mine for sure. I sing it to Noah at naptime and I will sing it to the new baby also. When I get in the car and nothing is on the radio, put the cd player on, song #4, and Solider is on.

I love my soliders: God, Nathan, and my parents. I am a solider to them and others also. Everyone needs a solider.

Here are the lyrics and a link to hear the song. He hasn't made the music video yet. Enjoy and I hope it inspires you as it does me!



Where did all the people go?
They got scared when the lights went low.
I'll get you through it nice and slow,
When the world's spinning out of control.

Afraid of what they might lose
Might get scraped or they might get bruised.
You could beg them, what's the use?
That's why it's called a moment of truth

I'll get it if you need it,
I'll search if you don't see it,
You're thirsty, I'll be rain,
You get hurt, I'll take your pain.

I know you don't believe it,
But I said it and I still mean it,
When you heard what I told you,
When you get worried I'll be your soldier.

Funny when times get hard,
At the last moment when you're supposed to charge,
Always on the longest yard,
Oh, they feel their feet getting cold.

Hiding here, hiding there,
Find them underneath the stairs,
People hiding everywhere,
Trying to be still like a stone.

I'll get it if you need it,
I'll search if you can't see it,
You're thirsty, I'll be rain,
You get hurt, I'll take your pain.

I know you don't believe it,
But I said it and I still mean it,
When you heard what I told you,
When you get worried I'll be your soldier.

My aim is so true,
I wanna show you,
I'll try forever,
I'm never gonna say "surrender".

I'll get it if you need it,
I'll search if you can't see it,
You're thirsty, I'll be rain,
You get hurt, I'll take your pain.

I know you don't believe it,
But I said it and I still mean it,
When you heard what I told you,
When you get worried I'll be your soldier.

I'll be your soldier
Well I'll be, oh I'll be your soldier
I'll be your soldier
I'll be your soldier
