LYRICS

I lift the veil of fog and blow it out to sea
Wisdom is my guide, unlocking mystery
And if you walk in darkness I’ll lead you to the sun
You can see me if you listen
You can feel me with your heart
You can let my music shape your destiny

I am song, je suis chanson
Join my chorus and know that you belong.
From sea to sea vous etes libres
Take my hand, walk the land with me
Come and share this melody

I send a mighty breeze through maples rising high
Dancing with the leaves my music fills the sky
in the magic of the moment, when words cannot be found
You can let me say it for you, you can hear me in the wind
I’m the answer that can shape your destiny

I am song, je suis chanson
Savoir que c’est votre patrie
From sea to sea vous etes libre
Take my hand, walk the land with me
Come and share this melody

We’ll travel prairie roads and touch the Northern skies
over mighty rockies, hear the music rise
and if we dare to journey we’ll find we all belong
You can hear us sing together, we’ll be standing arm in arm
and together we can share our destiny.

We are song, nous sommes chanson
Savoir que c’est votre patrie
From sea to sea vous etes libre
Prenez ma main, marchez le domaine

We are one and we are song!
