Her Protector

Written by Mandy Ringdal

One day his whole life changed

A baby girl with his last name

She took his heart, but didn’t know

How strong a love like that could grow

The years went by, he watched her grow

She would fall down, but he would know

He could protect her from the pain,

And even every drop of rain

Chorus

But then one day he couldn’t be there

Her world and his came crashing down,

All they could do was hold each other

As their world went into the ground

Verse

After a time, they found their laughter

But pain like that sure leaves a scar

He still knew he was her protector

But, he could only go so far

Chorus

‘Cause then one day he couldn’t be there

Her world again came crashing down

All they could do was hold each other

And pray to God a cure be found

Verse

She kept on fighting, found her laughter

She found a place to put her pain

He still knew he was her protector,

But, it would never be the same

Chorus

He learned he couldn’t always be there

For when her world comes crashing down

But, they will always hold each other

‘Cause love like that can’t be kept down

Might lose their way, but will be found

‘Cause a love like that can’t be kept down
