Song Description

Uplifting song reminding you that you can do it even if the odds are against you

Story Behind the Song

Everyone has a family member that this song seems to apply to. My family has several.


Light It Up

When my Daddy was an army man
He got surrounded in a foreign land
His men were cornered in the dark

When it looked like they were done
Daddy looked at everyone
"C'mon guys, it's just a walk in the park"

"It's not our time to go"
Let's call for help on the radio
The jets came in and did just what he said

Light it up, Light it up
Life can be so rough
But you don't have to take it lying down
Light it up Light it up
Show the world you're tough
If you don't wanna walk away then turn around
And light it up

My boy was in a baseball game
The announcer called his name
It was the bottom of the ninth and he was up to bat

I could tell that he was scared to death
Just wanted to do his best
We called time out and had a little chat

I reminded him of our little phrase
From Grandpa's old army days
He won that game 'cause every once in awhile, you gotta...Chorus

When the goin' gets tough
Dig down deep
Live and learn
Make a list of all the things
That are holding you back
Strike a match, Light it Up
Watch it gotta
