download MP3 -> fallen angels
for every night that you spent away
while we're at home - with those we love
for every hour of every day
while you’re missing those who you're thinking of

for just doin’ what you had to do
in a war they said just “had to be”
for putting your own dreams ‘on hold’
to protect our nation’s families –

for all you angels who have fallen
you have a spirit – a legacy that lives on
and in the names of our children
we send a thank you –
for those who gave their soul

for taking that phone call about goin’ back there
it can’t be easy – but you don’t think twice
(no) – it’s all for one – these are my brothers
it’s in your blood – you have no choice

another night under that red hot moon
when back home - war didn’t even make the news
just two more ‘casualties of a regime change’
while two more brothers – earn their wings

another night in that ugly world – while
I’m home with my boy and my girl
now I lay them down to sleep
while our freedoms you’re fightin’ to keep

I’m sure there’s times when you’ve got to be tired
and there’s got to be times when you feel so alone
so I will sing for our families
who’ll be here to thank you for comin' back home

for all you angels who have been called on
you have a spirit – a reason to live on
in the names of your children
we’ll be here to thank you –
for those who’re comin’ back home

for all you angels who have fallen
you have a spirit – a legacy that lives on
and in the names of our nation's children
we send a thank you –
for those who gave their soul
we’ll be here to thank you –
for those who’re comin’ back home
we send a thank you –
for those who give their soul
