lyrics

Spent my 20s working on choppers on a base across the sea
Saw some shit manning those machines
Still a man must carry the burden, all the pain of what he's lost
Most people here don't care to know the cost

It's my duty to protect you and keep you safe from harm
It's my duty to protect you from now on

"Work as hard when they're not looking as you would when they walk by"
Wish that I could follow Dad's advice
But I came back to Colorado, work was hard to come by there
They thank me for my service, send me away

It's my duty to protect you and keep you safe from harm
It's my duty to protect you from now on

Met a girl in a Longmont bar with a heart-shaped face and an easy charm
She pleads for me to tell her what I done
Suddenly, I don't feel burdened, she eases the weight that's held me down
Wonder what I'd be without her now
But still I wake up fast from bad dreams, don't recognize the room I'm in
She's by my side but damned if I know it

It's my duty to protect you and keep you safe from harm
It's my duty to protect you from now on
It's my duty to protect you and keep you safe from all I saw
It's my duty to protect you from now on.
