In dress blues you stand,
One hero, one man...
In cami's you work,
Through mountains you hike.

In deserts you'd serve,
For your country you'd die...
All for a people,
Unwilling to fight.

Out there somewhere,
Are people like me,
Who would give everything,
For one hero, one man...

To see you stay,
Safe at home,
I'd cross a thousand bridges,
And fly a thousand miles...

But you will go,
As one hero, one man,
And I will pray,
To a god I have never believed in...

If ever you were to think,
That no one cared,
Remember this one thing,
Here I am, and here I'll always be...
