The Flag Stands Where You Were

The flag stands where you were.

On the home front.

Defending what you love.

The flag stands where you were.

Sacrificing your dreams.

Postponing the future.

The flag stands where you were.

Barely eight-teen.

Fresh out of high-school.

The flag stands where you were.

Tall and strong.

Brave and daring.

The flag stands where you were.

The things you could have done.

The places you could have seen.

The flag stands where you were.

Now it lays to rest.

In the coffin where you lie.
