ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Uniting Cultures through the Global Passions of Football and Song

When Football United’s award winning film was launched in 2010, singer/song-writer Brian Elkington, approached us with a proposal to write a song to celebrate our force of uniting youth through football. We are proud and honoured to celebrate our partnership with Sydney FC by launching the song, Field of Dreams, at the 2013 Harmony Day match.

Field of Dreams, (The Football United Song) lyrics
We come from different places
But we’re the same
You’ll see it in our faces
We love this game
We love this game though
It’s not a game at all

We feel anticipation
We’ve got that burn
We’ve come for competition
We’ve come to learn
We play this game and
We learn about ourselves

Hey yo, hey yo, hey yo, hey yo
Hey yo, hey yo, hey yo, hey yo
We got style
We got game
And we have come to play

(you want to play, well we will play with you)

When everybody’s ready
We take the field
Our hearts are strong and steady
It’s all so real
And this field of play
Now becomes a field of dreams

(Hey yo, Chorus)

And when the game is over
We’ll still be friends
Cause that goes on forever
It never ends
We love this game though
It’s not a game at all

(Hey yo, Chorus)

(Rap integrated into chorus)
I was a refugee
I came from far away
I found a place for me
to call my own

I was a stranger here
But that was yesterday
With friends from far and near
I know I’m home again
