Somewhere there's a mother
Crying in her hands
Praying for the son who's
Fighting in the sand
Somewhere there's a boy who's
In a danger zone
Fighting to ensure his
Mother's safe at home
And oh say can you see,
That oh freedom isn't free

Thank you
For doing what you do to
Make sure we have the right to
Live the way we choose
Someone had to sacrifice
Risk their own to save a life
Thank you for doing what you do
What you do
What you do
What you do

Somewhere there's a father
Thinking of his child
He couldn't be more proud but
Afraid all the while
And somewhere there's a girl who's
In a danger zone
Fighting to ensure her
Father's safe at home

And oh, say can you see
That oh freedom isn't free
We thank you
For doing what you do to
Make sure we have the right to
Live the way we choose
We thank you
For being one of the few who
Go through what you go through
Who walk in your shoes

Someone had to sacrifice
Risk their own to save a life

Know that we are praying
Praying for you every day
Know that we are waiting
And we are so proud to say
Thank you
For doing what you do to
To make sure we have the right to
Live the way we choose
We thank you
For being one of the few who

Go through what you go through
Who walk in your shoes
Someone had to sacrifice
Risk their own to save a life
Thank you for doing what you do
You bring pride
What you do
You bring hope
What you do
Yes you do
What you do
