i wrote this right after 9/11 , this is how i felt after the events that took place and this

The cost 


When I was growing up 
I remember the stories my grandpa used to tell
About what this country had been through 
All the tears that were cried and all the brave me that fell
See I always knew millions of lives were lost 
But never really understood the cost 

Freedom is how we live 
Its not something easily gained 
It's in the tomb of the Unknown Soldier 
And burns with Kennedy's flame 
Its lady liberty in the harbor standing tall
It's the names of fallen hero engraved on the Vietnam wall


The cost of freedom 
The red, white and blue 
What this country is built on 
Lie in me and you 
It's the spirit 
The desire 
The never-ending fire 
It's the blood that was shed 
It's the lives that were lost 
It's the price we pay for the American dream 
It's the cost 

Watching the Towers Fall
I was speechless I didn't know what to say
And it seemed that the American dream 
Was slowly fading away
And as the tears began to fall 
An this country fell apart
We all reached for what we held 
True in our hearts 

And as we realized what had happened 
And all that was lost 
We finally truly understood 
The cost 


The cost of freedom 
The red, white and blue 
What this country is built on 
Lie in me and you 
It's the spirit 
The desire 
The never-ending fire 
It's the blood that was shed 
It's the lives that were lost 
It's the price we pay for the American dream 
It's the cost 


It's the price we pay
  

Oh it's the dear price we pay


It's the price we pay for the American dream 
It's the cost
