They Didn't Die Alone

God bless the home front, the land of the free

Make it safe for our people, we put our trust in thee

The times they have been changing, just like Bob Dylan once said

By a foreign hand, a terrorist band, N Y C streets ran Red

 

The heartland of America also bleeds today

There are loved ones who are missing, suddenly taken away

 Heroes who gave their lives, without a thought for their own

Wish there had been time to tell them we loved them, and that they didn't die alone

 

Stand strong my brothers who have seen blood shed before

Help those around you, comfort, reassure

This aint the battlefield, and  this ain't Vietnam

This is America, we gotta protect her from harm

 

From the skies came the terror, that rocked the whole world

Shook the stars on Old Glory, but now the red white and blue is unfurled

United together, for the first time in years

Our nation looks different, through eyes filled with tears

 

The times they are a changin, the Star Spangled Banners being sung

We just wanna let the world know we are freedoms daughters and sons

We don't buckle in the hard times, these colors will not run

 Liberty often shines brightest after the setting of the Sun

 

And the heart land of America still bleeds today

Our loved ones are missing, suddenly taken away

Heroes gave their lives without a thought for their own

Wish there had been time to tell them,

They didn't die alone

 

Wish there had been time to tell them

they didn't die alone...
