for my country lyrics – joey tempest

like a vision
that i keep inside
a memory locked away
no borderlines
no enemies
no religion to betray

i have felt the change
and it hurts me too
that no distance can deny

this is for my country
still battered and still bruised
i´ve come to offer all i can
i will fight for you
i will fight for you

you climb a hill
yet you fall down a mountain
when the truth is hard to face
and envy you
so proud and strong
still your people you embrace

and i am part of that
what you´ve given me
i have come to give it back

this is for my country
the spirit of my song
i´ve seen you suffler long enough
and it´s where i belong

it´s where i belong
i will keep my word
i will retrify
with all that i am worth

this is for my country
forever i am bound
with every bit of strength i hold
i´d never let you down
i´d never let you down

it´s where i belong
