She Outlived Them All

Copyright © 2011 Kelli Caldwell


Texte alternatif


 

Annie in her Oldsmobile
Tries keepingbusy
Shopping for a Christmas card or two
She’s lived a real life
Stayed true as a lover and a wife
And mother to enough to fill a table

 

She’s proud as she can be
For good reason, it’s plain to see
But her picture wall is all that she has left

 

Chorus:
She outlived them all
It isn’t supposed to be this way
To watch your children fall
Wishing you could take their place
And each and every time
Another piece of you dies—dies
Oh it dies

 

(Her) Three sons were patriots
They served with honor
Followed in the footsteps of their dad
She held their letters tight
When each faithful one arrived
And never gave up praying they’d come home

 

She cried—— a thousand tears
In each of—— her broken years
When memories were keeping her alive


Chorus:
She outlived them all
It isn’t supposed to be this way
To watch your children fall
Wishing you could take their place
And each and every time
Another piece of you dies—dies
Oh it dies

 

Bridge:
Daughter and the little one
No one could believe it when they heard
So she had to ask herself
Am I meant to live in hell?
Was I born to greave
Or fight to find a reason

 

Chorus:
She outlived them all
It isn’t supposed to be this way
To watch your children fall
Wishing you could take their place
And each and every time
Another piece of you dies—dies
Oh it dies

 



Lyric notes: At a stoplight, behind a lady in her old beat up Oldsmobile...
