The river looked much wider
Than it ever seemed before
Even though we crossed a hundred times or more
We were scared, so we dared each other

You first, and I'll be right behind you
You first, I'll meet you on the other side
The nature of a hero requires a leap of faith
You find out what you're made of when it's your time to say
You first

The chopper drops the ladder
In the middle of the war
Sergeant says, "There's only room just one more"
Two wounded brothers, and one says to the other

You first, and I'll be right behind you
You first, I'll meet you on the other side
The nature of a hero requires a leap of faith
You find out what you're made of when it's your time to say
You first

Now, I'm standing over you
All these years that we've been through
I wish it could be me
I never thought that it might be

You first, but I'll be right behind you
You first, I'll meet you on the other side
You always were my hero, here's my leap of faith
You find out what you're made of when it's your time to say
You first
