Watch “There She Stands” above. Lyrics below.

There She Stands

When the nightSeems to sayAll hope is lostGone awayBut I knowI’m not aloneBy the lightShe stands

There she wavesFaithful friendShimmering starsWestward windShow the wayCarry meTo the placeShe stands

Just when you think it might be overJust when you think the fight is goneSomeone will risk his life to raise herThere she stands

There she fliesClear blue skiesReminds us with redOf those that diedWashed in whiteBy the braveIn their strengthShe stands

When evil calls itself a martyrWhen all your hopes come crashing downSomeone will pull her from the rubbleThere she stands

We’ve seen her flying torn and tatteredWe’ve seen her stand the test of timeAnd through it all the fools have fallenThere she stands

By the dawn’sEarly lightAnd through the fightShe stands
