Lyrics


I Stand For You
© 2008 D. DeMelfi and K. McCourt

Sailing from a land where freedom rings
Headed for a land where there is none
You don’t quite understand the reason why
You just know there’s a job that must be done

Yesterday you walked among the ones you love
Tomorrow you must watch the steps you take
Different worlds colliding there inside your mind
You try hard not to let your spirit break

One more look at your children
You pray to God it won’t be the last

I stand for you - you stood for me
Together we’ll make the world a better place to be
(Maybe it’s right - maybe it’s wrong)
(Maybe we’re not supposed to be there this long)
But united we stand - divided we fall
You stood for me - I stand for you
You gave it all

The day has finally come - you’re going home
Different from the man you used to be
Hold your head up high for a job well done
You paid the price so we can be free

Say goodbye to your brothers
You say a prayer for those left behind

I stand for you - you stood for me
Together we’ll make the world a better place to be
(Maybe it’s right - maybe it’s wrong)
(Maybe we’re not supposed to be there this long)
But united we stand - divided we fall
You stood for me - I stand for you
You gave it all
