Listen

Standard

 

Listen to the heartbeat
As we drum into the city
Listen to the cadence
As the rainfall hits the ground
Listen to the rhythm
As each step meets the pavement
Listen to the whispers As we march into the town
Listen to the rustle
As we come to attention
Listen to the crispness
As we give our salute
Listen to the horn play
As we watch our flag rise higher
Listen to the silence
As it stops mid-staff
Listen to the crying As our brothers are unloaded
Listen to the heartbreak
As they’re lowered into the ground
Listen to air ring out
As the seven send three shots
Listen to the heroes sing
As we honor those who’ve fallen
Listen to the courage
As we thank each soldier’s family
Listen to the bravery
As we turn back to our war
