Five For Fighting
Freedom Never Cries

I took a flag to a pawn shop
For a broken guitar
I took a flag to a pawn shop
How much is that guitar?
I took a flag to a pawn shop
I got me that guitar
What’s a flag in a pawn shop to me?

Saw a man on the TV
In a mask with a gun
A man on the TV
He had a ten year old son
I saw a man on the TV
His son had a gun
He says that he’s coming for me

Chorus
I never loved the soldier
Until there was a war
Or thought about tomorrow
‘til my baby hit the floor
I only talk to God
When somebody’s about to die
I never cherished freedom

Freedom never cries

I wrote a song for a dead man
To settle my soul
A song for a dead man
And now I’ll never grow old
I wrote a song for a dead man
Now I’m hollowed in the cold
What’s a song to a dead man to me?

I never loved the soldier
Until there was a war
Or thought about tomorrow
‘til my baby hit the floor
I only talk to God
When somebody’s about to die
I never cherished freedom

Freedom never cries

You can cry for her
Die for her
Lay down your life for her
Kiss and wave goodbye to her
Anything at all

You can cry for her
Die for her
Make up your mind to her
Anything at all

There’s a baby on the doorstep
Wailing away
There’s a baby on the doorstep
Longing for the day
There’s a baby on the doorstep
Who’d give his life to take
A flag to a pawn shop
A flag to a pawn shop
May he forget why he is crying
Someday
