Josh Groban Lyrics

No man, no madness
Though their sad power may prevail
Can possess, conquer, my country's heart
They rise to fail

She is eternal
Long before nations' lines were drawn
When no flags flew, when no armies stood
My land was born
And you ask me why I love her
Through wars, death, and despair
She is the constant, we, who don't care
And you wonder will I leave her
But how?

I cross over borders but I'm still there now

How can I leave her?
Where would I start?
Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

It's interesting listening to Josh then, and Josh now. His voice has matured, but there's an edge and an intensity in the early days that he doesn't have now - it's all smooth and rich now. Hard to know which I prefer, but I love them both.

Coming here 2 years later lol. I know what you mean. I kind of want to hear his operatic notes again though... But I love his voice then and his voice now.

Josh sang this song at his Stages concert in Toronto on Sept 22, 2015 and I can only describe his performance as stunning and flawless. Part of what made his performance so great was not only his voice but the stance he took. He buttoned up his suit jacket, threw his shoulders back and stood tall. The way he presented himself while singing the song totally matched the words he was singing. Together with the choir he sang with, the finale of the song awe inspiring.

I love this. I play it over and over! But Josh could sing ABC's and I'd love it. What a gift we have been given in him.

Patricia Blair

I totally agree that I don't why people always have to comment on someone else's version being better. I think his version is absolutely amazing!

Donnette Davis

I might have watched @joshgroban sing this 2000000 times... But WOW! Simply this... I am in love


I love his marvelous posture, perfect breathing, and quiet hands. Everything is in his voice and his face, as it should be. A finished artist in every respect.

Martha Newman

This has become my favorite patriotic song, sung so beautifully here.
