Lyrics:
Sounds of Vancouver 2010 Opening Ceremony Commemorative Album >
You and I
Together we reach for the sky
It's all about winning
It's all about playing the game

From the east from the west
Each of us trying our best
Chasing the dream
Burning to follow the flame

Bang the drum a little louder
So the whole world can hear - the whole world can hear
Sing the song a little longer
So the whole world can hear - the whole world can hear

From near from far
It's clear wherever you are
This is your moment
Your time to run like the wind

Dream big, aim high
Even believe you can fly
Give it your all
Let the games begin

Bang the drum a little louder
So the whole world can hear - the whole world can hear
Jump up a little higher
So the whole world can see ya - the whole world can see ya

Sing the song a little longer
So the whole world can hear - the whole world can hear
Bang the drum a little louder
For the whole world to hear - the whole world to hear
