They never thought when they left here
their families they’d see no more
No one dares to think about
The high price of such a war.
If you asked them why they did it
They’d say because it was right
Someone has to stand up sometimes
And someone has to fight.
A world away they defend our cause
As we tuck our kids in bed
Some give all for all of us
And somewhere tears will be shed.
They do not ask for fame or fortune
Just that we recognize
We are all here, free today
Because the fallen have paid the price.
