Saving a Life

For strength and passion is what it takes
Saving lives, a person it makes
The things i've seen, the things i've done
Will normally make a normal person run.

Helping the sick and injured stay alive
Hoping they'll stay with us until we arrive
Their pain is easing, going away
They thought this would be just a normal day.

Heart pounding against my chest
I typically dont see people at their best
The courage it takes to save a life
To be there for them when they lose their wife

As an EMT you see a lot
You see things you'll never forget
Things that alter you at your very core
But it just makes you want to help people more.
