Flag in the Ground
Flag in the Ground is a symphonic metal song by the Finnish band Sonata Arctica.
Leaving my life behind My young love and the unborn Only have a lock of her hair And a burning love inside After forty work-filled days and sleepless nights The sails are lit by the lights of Boston, and here we go Off the ship, towards the adventure The one to define our lives Daily grind and a tiny room "I got here safe, love. I have an address until spring, then I will race for the land Hope to hear from you soon." Her letter reads: Please let me know everything's alright Thinking about you, though you're out of sight Every night when I'm turning in, my tears find me Please hurry, dear, come back and rescue me "Now that I have made the dollars we need for the dream The best horse I've ever seen, A carriage and everything I need I will make my way to the Great Unknown Every moment I wish you were here with me now" Please let me know everything's alright Thinking about you, though you're out of sight Every night when I'm turning in, my tears find me Please hurry, dear, come back and rescue me No, I'm not a stranger among the people in here Yet I have never felt so alone At high noon, sound will boom, And I will start racing for the land we can call home I stuck my flag in the ground, screaming and shouting I've never felt so proud, love We are free from eternal serfdom I'm gonna bring you home my light I made my way into the Great Unknown Land by the river, and a new-built home I am the land, and the land is me Freedom is everything, and we are free I made my way into the Great Unknown Land by the river, and a new-built home Every night, when I'm looking at the full moon rising I hold you and know that we are free
