He was just one more name in the story
He was just one more face in the crowd
There were no laurels waiting, no praises or glory
For this silent, this valiant, this proud

You didn't know where he had come from
You didn't know what dreams he dreamed
He was just one more crewman of hundreds to choose from
No one asked if he was more than he seemed

There are those who will live on in legend
There are those who are destined for fame
But the price to be paid often goes unimagined
And we can't put the faces to names

So although we may seek out adventure
We must always keep counting the cost
We must never forget all we have is each other
And remember the ones who are lost
