I see the mountains, feel the salt air

I have reasons to behold

All the wonders that never cease to be


You're as timeless as the water

You're as gentle as the fields

I caress you, oh, my homeland in my dreams


You never let the hard times take away your soul

And you stopped the tears from falling

As you watched the young ones go


You're as peaceful as a clear day

You're as rugged as the seas

I caress you, oh, my homeland in my dreams


And home I'll be, home I'll be

Banish thoughts of leaving

Home I'll be


I see the blue lake and rushing river

I have reasons to believe

there are places that will bring you to your knees


I hear voices sweetly calling

I have reason to take heed

I caress you, oh, my homeland in my dreams


And you kept your arms wide open

To let your children know

Wherever there is distance, the heart is always home.


You’re as soulful as a choir

you’re as ancient as the hills.

I caress you, oh, my homeland in my dreams


chorus
