Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward

Verse

He opened his eyes in that hospital room

Friends and family with tears in their eyes

He’s a bit confused

Then he feels a heart — beat once, beat twice —

For that heartbeat in his chest somebody gave their life

Chorus

And he can’t pay them back, can’t even say thank you

He can’t shake a hand or write a check

for the debt that’s due

He can’t pay it back, no way to pay it back

He can’t pay it back

so he pays it forward

Verse

Everything she loves is nearly gone

The firemen ran inside but they’re taking so long

Then there he stands with her son in his hands

“Might take some time but he’ll be just fine,”

says the fireman.

Chorus

And she can’t pay him back, can’t even say thank you

She can’t shake a hand or write a check

for the debt that’s due

She can’t pay him back, no way to pay him back

She can’t pay it back

so she pays it forward

Verse

He’s twenty-one, sitting in the pew,

Staring at the cross on the wall asking, “What do I do?”

Then he bows his head, falls to his knees,

“All these years, You died for me,

and I never knew.”

Chorus

And he can’t pay it back, can’t even say thank you

He can’t shake a hand or write a check

for the debt that’s due

He can’t pay it back, no way to pay it back

He can’t pay it back

so he pays it forward

Verse

To the surgeon’s hands worth more than gold

To the soldier who died and their story was never told

To the police cadet, to the EMTs,

To the Father above who came to earth

and died on a tree

We can’t pay them back

Some debts can’t be paid back

When you can’t pay it back

Pay it forward

Pay it forward

Pay it forward

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I
    was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.

    Too cool!
