  • From the mountains to the sun, life has only just begun
    We wed this land and pledge our souls to meet its end
    Life has only just begun
    Here my people roam the earth, in the kingdom of our birth
    Where the dust of all our horses hides the sun
    We are mighty on the earth, on the earth

    You have come to move me, take me from my ancient home
    Land of my fathers I can't leave you now
    We will share it with you, no man owns this earth we're on
    Now the wheels are rolling, hear the howling winds of war
    It's my destiny to fight and die
    Is there no solution, can we find no other way, Lord let me stay
    Under the endless sky and the earth below
    Here I was born to live and I will never go, oh no

    But we cannot endure like the earth and the mountains
    Life is not ours to keep, for a new sun is rising

    Soon these days shall pass away, for our freedom we must pay
    All our words and deeds are carried on the wind
    In the ground our bodies lay, here we stay

    Thanks to her for the correction
