They Opened Up the Door for Me”

Picking up the pieces

Of heroes gone before

Never took the time to see

They opened up the door for me

I guess I gotta know just why

They gave their all and died

Just so I could live and be free

They opened up the door for me

 

How can I ever repay

The debt these heroes levied on me

How can I carry this guilt

That it wasn’t me

I’m just left to wonder why

They opened up the door for me

 

Just where did they come from

Why did God make them the one

Why them and not me

How can I ever see

They opened up the door for me

 

I’ll go a lifetime wondrin why

Why them and not me

But for now I’ll just cry and pray

That they gave me one more day

 

How can I ever repay

The debt these heroes levied on me

How can I carry this guilt

That it wasn’t me

I’m just left here wonderin why

They opened up the door for me
