You cleared ninety acres
In your family name
You said in this new country
You would start again

Now your plow lays idle
And your well’s run dry
You said in this new country
There’s a will to survive

As you step out of the shadows
The sunlight falls upon your face

This land is hard
And the will is strong
And the bond we share
Is the need to belong

Despite our differences
We are still the same
You cannot deny
But the ties remain

As you step out of the shadows
The sunlight falls upon your face
The weight is lifted from your shoulders
You breathe the air you can now taste

You cleared ninety acres
In your family name
You said in this new country
You would start again

Now your plow lays idle
And your well’s run dry
You said in this new country
There’s a will to survive

As you step out of the shadows
The sunlight falls upon your face
The weight is lifted from your shoulders
You breathe the air you can now taste
