Song Lyrics

Verse: In the quiet of the evening
The alarm has sound and every ear that
Hears will stop, to pray a silent prayer
Could it be a false alarm or is another fire raging
And who will win the battle as the flames draw near?

As we fight against the odds we realize
There’s a special calling placed upon our lives

Chorus: And I’m proud to be by your side
Where together we will fight the fight
‘Cause helping people in need is a firefighter’s dream
And I’m proud to be by your side

Verse: It’s another nameless morning
And the call goes out, a warning
There’s a precious life that’s hanging by a thread
And so we rush with hearts a-pounding
Knowing every moment’s counting
If they’ll ever see their family again

As we fight against the odds we realize
There’s a special calling placed upon our lives

Chorus: And I’m proud to be by your side
Where together we will fight the fight
‘Cause helping people in need is a firefighter’s dream
And I’m proud to be by your side

Bridge: Yes, there’s something very special in a fire fighter’s life
You can see it in the difference that we make every day

Chorus: And I’m proud to be by your side
Where together we will fight the fight
‘Cause helping people in need is a firefighter’s dream
And I’m proud to be by your side

Chorus: And I’m proud to be by your side
Where together we will fight the fight
‘Cause helping people in need is a firefighter’s dream
And I’m proud to be by your side

I’m so proud to be by your side.
