The Gloves.......


When we hear the call...we go without fear
Even if the "help" is what we think we hear
When the firemans hand goes into a glove
Believe it or not......we do it with love

Sometimes the devastation is hard to bear
It burns into our soul..it gets you "in there"
Off comes the "profession"...we're humans after all
Away it goes.....till we answer the next call

We all are cold...lonely for a bit
Do we ever shake when we dwell on it.......
We've all sat there....our heads in our hands
Our tears have flowed....'til our next command

Its a side that,well, we really have to hide...
Believe it or not...we're human inside
Whether you care......or indeed if not
Our gloves feel the same....cold or hot
To those we save.....we'll do it all night long
When you seen their thanks.....you always feel strong

When its time to go on my final ride
I'll have my gloves....just by my side
To show St.Peter at the heavenly gate....
My life as a fireman.....it really was great

Thank God Im a fireman.......

Try walking in our shoes.....
