There are places in my mind
Places lost in time
Where heros lived
and died
Places of remote landscapes
Forgotten songs
Beautiful Lakes
Places that dreams
Created homes

In a land of free
the sun shines on me
In a sky of blue
My heart listens to you
I wish I could be
All that you see
All that is beautiful to me

There are places that I've visited
Under skies bright without end
Where father's lived
Children played
Mothers grinned
and they make me proud
to be there and to see
this land so free

There are places that I've seen
Skies of blue
Clouds on dappled land
Where wagons remain
Souls are asleep
Sounds echo between the peaks
Roads scar the land
Gone are the dreams
Gone are the plans

In a land of free
the sun shines on me
In a sky of blue
My heart listens to you
I wish I could be
All that you see
All that is beautiful to me


There are places
I have not been
Where the Earth
Marrys sky and land
and our parents
cried, perhaps even died
Where bright stars shine
when darkness roams
O'er a land asleep
Our beautiful home

In a land of free
the sun shines on me
In a sky of blue
My heart listens to you
I wish I could be
All that you see
All that is beautiful to me
