It's simple and eternal
The sum of where we're made
Across the land we circle
Inside is where we're raised
As nations keep on marching
As borders break and fall
The guardian eye is watching
The hawk who sees it all

I know you're aching to move on
It doesn't matter where you are when you belong

Something close to love
But more mysterious
I'll hold you in the shadow of my arms
Always close to love
But more victorious
Can you feel this empire being born
The pull of where you're from is far too strong

It's honest and it's brutal
There's beauty in its strength
It's never less than truthful
It's born from innocence

Break through the web that I have spun
It doesn't matter where you are when I am gone

Something close to love
But more mysterious
I'll hold you in the shadow of my arms
Always close to love
But more victorious
Can you feel this empire being born
The pull of where you're from is far too strong

Always close to
Always close to
Always close to
Always always

Something close to love
But more mysterious
I'll hold you in the shadow of my arms
Always close to love
But more victorious
Can you feel this empire being born
The pull of where you're from is far too strong
