Flag In the Ground Lyrics - Sonata Arctica

Review The Song (4)



Prologue:
"In the days when lands were few, and man sometimes had no chance but sell his soul to his landlord to make a living...
In far and away country, they gave acres of land away for free, to all able to claim it...
Ships sailed across the great seas, fortunes were made and dreams shattered...
Sometimes couples were torn apart, for all they could afford...was one ticket."

Leaving my life behind
My young love and the unborn
Only have a lock of her hair...
and 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 shall 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 the sound will boom, and I will start racing for the land we can call home.

I stuck my... flag in the ground, screaming 'n shouting,
I've never felt so proud, Love!
We are free from eternal serfdom!
I'm gonna bring you home, my light!

Nine, eight, seven, six, counting the days. SOLO!
Five, four, three, two, together forever! SOLO!

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...

Sonata Arctica's music | Reviewer: serpenhex yengkhom | 7/28/11

Sonata Arctica's songs are quite interlinked and carries a whole lot of story to imagine. I don't knw how the lyrics are been written but comparing this song with other songs of them like in 'FULL MOON' & 'MY LAND', it is clearly seen that the lyrics are interconnected... anyway this band is one band whose lyrics are better than Shakespeare's poems! lol..



SONATA in my dreams | Reviewer: Nikki | 6/17/10

This song remembers me of a dream I did this night: it was so beautiful that I decided not to forget it, cuz I'd like to make a story out of it (yeah, I'm a writer).
Sonata's songs are really close to my heart, so I think I'll really write the story, maybe the fate is calling me through Sonata's excellent melodies! ;P

I love this song. The instrumentation on both the original and it's orchestral variant are amazing. The lyrics tell a very heart warming story. The lyrics of this song will never be forgotten by me, their story is very touching to me and gives me a sense of hope.

"I hold you and know that we are free..."




love 4 the love song | Reviewer: Chaos | 11/6/09

this song is one of the first songs that i ever heard from Sonata Arctica and every time i here theses lyrics

"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..."

it sends a chill down my spine and a shiver
