See the sun rise over her skin
Don't change it
See the sun rise over her skin
Dawn changes everything

And the delta sun
Burns bright and violet

Gold and silver veins
Of the shining cities

In this heartland

In this heartland
Heaven knows this is a heartland
Heartland, heartland

See the sun rise over her skin

Freeway like a river cuts through this land

And the poison rain
Brings a flood of fear
Through the ghost ranch hills
Death valley waters
In the towers of steel
Belief goes on and on

In this heartland
In this heartland soil
In this heartland
Heaven knows this is a heartland
Heartland, heaven knows this is a heartland
Heartland, heartland
Heartland, heaven's day here in the heartland
Heart
