All Along


For our law enforcement and the connection we all hold together...
Sirens echo on the streets
Shadows lurking in the dark
The place where law and order meets
Thousands of our broken hearts
Badges and blue fulfill the beats
The cry for help – a 911 call
Safety, security and our peace
A need arises beneath it all

Righting anything gone wrong
Protecting weakness with the strong
The wounded join in a common song
It’s what we wanted all along

They wake up and prepare their day
Like any of us would have to do
Grabbing a coffee along the way
After sending the kids off to school
Driving to work, putting in the time
Punching the clock, earning their keep
Tackling the challenge, facing the grind
Until reaching home, a place to sleep

Righting anything gone wrong
Holding the thin blue line strong
The loyal join in a common song
It’s what we wanted all along

We wake up and prepare our day
It’s the same for every one of us
A will to walk a lighted way
A longing for the truth and trust
Keeping the peace, holding the dream
One humanity, one course, one seed
Imagining what is yet to be seen
One security, one force, one need

Righting everything gone wrong
Family and community strong
A journey to peace so very long
We play our parts, we carry on
With a force to which we all belong
The united join in a common song
It’s what we wanted all along
It’s what we wanted all along
