Lyrics

SACRIFICE   

by Caryn Borland

 

1.  EVERY TIME THE FLAG’S UNFURLED

YOUR HEART FILLS WITH PRIDE

NOW YOU’RE HEADED HALFWAY ROUND THE WORLD

LEAVING ALL YOU KNOW BEHIND

AS THE PLANE TOUCHES DOWN

IN A DRY AND BARREN LAND

YOU WONDER WHAT LIES AHEAD

ACROSS THE DESERT SAND

 

SURROUNDED BY BOMBS AND GUNFIRE

THE WORD OF GOD IS TAUGHT

BY HIS DEVOTED SERVANTS

WHO TRY TO SEEK AND SAVE THE LOST

AND BUILD UP THE SOLDIERS

WHO ARE PUT IN HARM’S WAY

GIVING STRENGTH TO THE WEARY

AS THEY FIGHT FOR US EACH DAY  CHORUS

 

CHORUS:  TO THE REAL AMERICAN HEROES

WHO NEVER GIVE UP THE FIGHT

PROTECTING SO MANY THEY’VE NEVER MET

THROUGHOUT EACH DAY AND NIGHT

WE OWE YOU SO MUCH

WE’LL NEVER KNOW JUST

WHAT YOU’VE GONE THROUGH

TO KEEP US FREE TO LIVE OUR LIVES

WE’RE SO GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SACRIFICE

 

 

2.  GOODNIGHT DADDY GOODNIGHT MOON

WHERE ARE YOU?  WILL YOU BE HOME SOON?

CAN’T YOU COME TO MY BASEBALL GAME

WITHOUT YOU THERE IT JUST ISN’T THE SAME

SORRY SON YOU KNOW I WISH I COULD

TAKE CARE OF YOUR MOM, TRY TO BE GOOD

I KNOW IT’S HARD TO BE SO FAR APART

BUT YOU’RE WITH ME IN MY HEART

 

YOUR DAUGHTER TOOK HER FIRST STEPS TODAY

I MISS YOU BABE ARE YOU OK?

I LONG TO HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS AGAIN 

FEEL YOU CLOSE TO ME

GOD KEEP YOU SAFE TILL THEN

I NEED YOU HERE BESIDE ME

IT’S SO HARD TO BE STRONG

EVERY DAY IS SO LONELY

AND THE NIGHTS ARE SO LONG  CHORUS

 

 

3.  WHETHER ON LAND, SEA OR IN THE AIR

OR THE STREETS OF OUR HOME TOWNS

YOU KEEP US SAFE FROM DANGER

NO MATTER WHERE IT MAY BE FOUND

LEAVING FAMILY AND FRIENDS BEGIND

WILLING TO GIVE YOUR LIVES

YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE THIS SACRIFICE 

 

CHORUS

 

ENDING:  THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICE
