Somewhere a trumpet sounds in the night
A soldier is standing there
It’s calling him out to the stars and the stripes
It’s calling him God knows where

He kisses the ones he loves goodbye
and leaves in the dead of night
For freedom he’ll heed the call
Leave all he knows
(duet) And for freedom he’ll stand and fight

And somewhere a man and wife
can’t believe they’re waving their girl goodbye
For gone are the days of pigtails and curls and candlelight lullabies

If they had their way she’d stay young forever
and never be far from home
But freedom has drawn her heart to danger’s shore
And for freedom they’ll let her go

And somewhere a thunderous crash in the night
It echoes all through the hills

Though many escape it’s wrath and it’s rage
A soldier lies wounded still

Melissa / Janna:
Remembering the land he loves, he cries
I’ve loved you with all my might
For freedom said I’m her son whatever comes (whatever comes)
And for freedom I’ll say goodbye


And somewhere beneath the stars and the sky

Our flag is still standing there (she’s still standing there)

She bled and she brought one land under God (under God)

Her colors still lead us there (it’s still there)

She’s carried the lives of those before us

She’s buried the bold and brave

For freedom she holds our hopes and and hands up high

And for freedom she’ll ever wave
