Can you see them marching in the brightening shades of morning,
Swords and helms are shining in the sun's first rays.
Have you heard their footsteps on the road to war and glory,
The ones who went before us built the Dream of Calontir.

Do you hear them singing in the wind that blows around you,
Voices raised in laughter, and the banner in their hands.
Do you know the meaning of the song they sing together,
A brother's song of freedom is the Dream of Calontir.

Can you tell me where they're going,
Following the footsteps in the bright morning sun?
Can you show me the vision,
Of the future of the kingdom that has just been born?

Gathered round the campfire as the nighttime pales to morning,
Wine bottle empty and a guitar in my hands,
Faceless in the darkness as we sing of new beginnings,
Songs we sang together built the Dream of Calontir.

Can you see us marching with the morning sun to guide us,
Swords and helms are ready and our voices true and clear.
Now we march together on the day of new beginnings,
Our songs and swords together built the Dream of Calontir.

Can you tell me where they're going,
Following the footsteps in the bright morning sun?
Can you show me the vision,
Of the future of the kingdom that has just been born?

Brothers will you join me in the songs of celebration,
Join me in the building and the songs we've yet to hear?
The kingdom we are building is the child of our believing,
We have built the vision that is know as Calontir.
