Lyrics

There’s a story, I have to tell you / It’s a story of a man and the land
It’s a story of the Yukon / And how I finally came to make a stand

I’d been running since my teenage / And I never found a place to settle down
I’d been running from myself, friend / But my self always seemed to track me down

And I wandered into the northland / Not knowing who or when or why or where
But soon I started finding answers / In the heart of the Yukon mountains I found there

And I finally made my stand on the land
I hope my folks down south will understand
Not them I'm running from, best thing I ever done
No need to roam, 'cause here and now, this is my home

I was taken by the beauty/ Of a land largely undisturbed by man
I was shaking like a shaman's rattle / I was trembling with the power of this land

And it’s aurora bor ealis / And the colour of the mountains in the fall
And the stars that shine so sweetly / And the moon that so illuminates my soul

And I finally made my stand on the land
I hope my friends down south will understand
Not them I'm running from, best thing I ever done
No need to roam, 'cause here and now, this is my home

(Instrumental)
Now and then I wonder how I got here / And I wonder if I could ever leave
For I know that it feels so right here/ For it's here in the land and myself I first believed

And I finally made my stand on the land
I’ve felt the work of the Great Spirit’s hand
The magic and mystery, in the Yukon I’m so free
No need to roam, 'cause here and now, this is my home
