He used to wear a small toy fireman’s hat
An old red raincoat that was torn
And then he’d rescue me out of the fire
As he would save the day once more

Some other times, he’d wear a plastic badge
Pull me over in the driveway
Cuz I was speeding on my tricycle
He’d say I’ve got to mind my way

Now, 20 years past
Brother he wears a completely new outfit
But can our family stand
Just one more day

So when you close your eyes at night
Please say a prayer for my brother
And Ask God to keep him well
As he keeps us safe, you’ll see

He left our home and went away
Cuz someone needs him more than I do
I pray so hard just to believe
Cuz I still need my hero please
Just bring my brother back to me

And now a candle burns in St. Joan’s Church
Our family’s hopes within it blown
We pray the angels take this light to him
So he can find his way back home

Momma prays every day
Little Bro Billy gets quiet for hours
Even Dad whispers words
When he’s alone

So when you close your eyes at night
Please say a prayer for my brother
And Ask God to keep him well
As he keeps us safe, you’ll see

He left our home and went away
Cuz someone needs him more than I do
I pray so hard just to believe
Cuz I still need my hero please
Just bring my brother back to me

I pray so hard just to believe
Cuz I still need my hero please
Just bring my brother back to me
