stronger wiser

I was born in this land
this beautiful land where sunshine abounds
a land that's given over the years
the river providing the blood

the evening heat and the wait for the rain
our cards not always sweet
mother throws her best sometimes
but with love she can't compete

'cos there's been times of good
and times of bad that have threatened us before
but we unite and learn to help ourselves
stronger wiser we become

my great grandpa died after the war
sadly once young and free
my great grandma five kids she raised
single-handedly

high hurdles deep holes and westerly winds
something always at her feet
but she didn't fall despite the ride
love would provide her seat

'cos there's been times of good
and times of bad that have threatened us before
but we unite and learn to help ourselves
stronger wiser we become

sometimes in our lives
we all feel pain we all feel pain
but there's no pride lost if you ask for help
just everything to gain

'cos there's been times of good
and times of bad that have threatened us before
but we unite and learn to help ourselves
stronger wiser we become

ooh 'cos there's been times of good and
times of bad but we've learned to help ourselves and
don't you worry 'cos i'll be there
and stronger wiser we'll become
and there's no pride lost if you ask for help
just everything to gain
yes there's no pride lost if you ask for help
just everything to gain
