We hear the plaintive bell that tolls
The eagle sheds a tear
Old Glory waves in gentle breeze
And we live without fear.
.
Because they did, because they would
Because they gave their all
The heroes who gave us this land
Are not names on a wall.
.
Their someone’s son or daughter
Someone who had to weep
Someone who’s heart is broken
For the freedoms that we reap.
.
They’re someone’s special sister
Or someone’s loving bro
They’re someone we’d be richer
If we had a chance to know.
.
They’re someone’s darling sweetheart
They’re someone’s dearest friend
They put their all upon the line
This nation to defend.
.
And now they lie in rows so neat
Their legacy we mark
With stones that bear their name and rank
And stand lone vigil, stark
.
But in the hearts and in the mind
In every American’s soul
Will live forever- their sacrifice
-For them the bells that toll.
