"For You" as written by Keith Lionel Urban and Monty Powell....
All I saw was smoke and fire
I didn’t feel a thing
But suddenly I was rising higher
And I felt like I just made
The biggest mistake
When I thought about my unborn child
When I thought about my wife
And the answer rang out clear
From somewhere up above
No greater gift has man
Than to lay down his life for love

And I wonder, would I give my life
Could I make that sacrifice
If it came down to it could I take the bullet, I would
Yes I would, for you

Maybe you don’t understand
I don’t understand it all myself
But there’s a brother on my left and another on my right
And in his pocket just like mine
He’s got a photograph
And they’re waiting for him back home
It’s weighing on my mind
I’m not trying to be a hero
I don’t wanna die
But right now in this moment
You don’t think twice

I wonder, would I give my life
Could I make that sacrifice
If it came down to it could I take the bullet, I would
Yes I would

You don’t think about right
You don’t think about wrong
You just do what you gotta do
To defend your own
I’d do the same, for you
Yes I would

I would give my life
I would make that sacrifice
'Cause if it came down to it could I take a bullet, I would
Yes I would

I’d do it for you
I’d do it for you
Take a bullet, for you
Yes I would
