  • How do we honor those who have fallen and died for this dream?
    I'm sure of one thing, it's not with gridlock or bickering
    We're the children of explorers, that came here from every corner
    The adventures that sat on this land
    We led the world, fought tyranny, touched the stars, brought liberty
    Let's do that again

    Tonight I dare you to dream
    Go on, believe impossible things
    Whenever anybody says there's anything we can't do
    I mean after all, there's an American flag on the moon

    Outside the other night, you should have seen the moonlight
    It's enough to make you squint your eyes
    So my five year old had learned about
    The lunar landing and he walked out
    And started staring at the sky
    Stood there for a while, he got a great big smile
    And said, "Dad, I think I can see it, can you?"
    I bowed my head, closed my eyes and said
    "Yes son, I think I do"

    Tonight I dare you to dream
    Go on, believe impossible things
    Whenever anybody says there's anything we can't do
    Cause after all, there's an American flag on the moon

    Oh, in two hundred years
    Think about all that we've done so far
    I don't see any reason why tomorrow can't be ours

    Tonight I dare you to dream
    Go on, believe impossible things
    Whenever anybody says there's anything we can't do
    Cause after all, after all,
    There's an American flag on the moon
