From behind these walls I heard your song, oh sweet words
The music that you play lights up my world
The sweetest thing that I've heard
Could it be that I've been touched and turned, oh lord please
Finally, finally things are changing

This land is mine but I'll let you rule
I'll let you navigate and demand
Just as long as you know, this land is mine
So find your home and settle in
Oh I'm ready to let you in
Just as long as we know, this land is mine

After all the battles and wars, the scars and loss
I am still the queen of my domain
And feeling stronger now
The walls are down a little more each day, since you came
Finally, finally times are changing

This land is mine but I'll let you rule
I'll let you navigate and demand
Just as long as you know, this land is mine
So find your home and settle in
Oh I'm ready to let you in
Just as long as we know, this land is mine

For all the days I've traveled alone
In this cold and colorless place till now
It's what I had to pay

This land is mine but I'll let you rule
I'll let you navigate and demand
Just as long as you know, this land is mine
So find your home and settle in
Oh I'm ready to let you in
Just as long as we know, this land is mine
