There She Stands

There she stands

When the night
Seems to say
All hope is lost
Gone away
But I know I'm not alone

By the light
She stands 

There she waves
Faithful friend
Shimmering stars
Westward wind
Show the way
Carry me
To the place
She stands 


Just when you think it might be over
Just when you think the fight is gone
Someone will risk his life to raise her

There she stands


There she flies
Clear blue sky
Reminds us with red
Of those that died
Washed in white
By the brave
In their strength
She stands 


When evil calls itself a martyr
When all your hopes come crashing down
Someone will pull her from the rubble

There she stands 

We've seen her flying torn and tattered
We've seen her stand the test of time
And through it all the fools have fallen
There she stands 

By the dawn's early light
And through the fight
She stands
