Dougie MacLean – It Belongs To Us lyrics

It stands within a time of dreams
Engraven stone on which it seems ten thousand naked
Hands have drawn an endless line
Where man and earth were more than one
With fire, water, moon and sun
We touch it and were centred in this place and time

They try and tear it all away
O but turning heads can't hear what heavy hearts must
It belongs to us, it belongs to us
It's our sacred rock you hold
And it's our destiny that you have thrown away
It's our sacred rock you hold

These canyons where our ancients sleep
They rise above our heads and keep connection with the
Winds on which our seeds have come
And it's there we lay and rest our dead
It's there the last goodbyes are said
We see it and we know that we will all be one

You may think it's worthless
You may think it's small and for that we have no need
But reality is bigger than the lies you have grown
From your spiritless greed

There is a deep and distant force
That knows the way and holds the course we've travelled
So uncertainly from year to year
And it strengthens as we pass it on
Our children growing graceful strong
We feel it and we're certain that our way is clear
