Written for the Broadway musical Aida
Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Tim Rice
Oh oh, fortune favors the brave
Oh oh, fortune favors the brave
We have swept to glory, Egypt's mastery expands
From the Nile's northern delta to the dry dry southern lands
The more we find, the more we see, the more we come to learn
The more we explore, the more we shall return
Oh oh, fortune favors the brave
It's all worked out, my road is clear
The lines of latitude extend
Way beyond my wildest dreams
Towards some great triumphant end
We seized the day, we turned the tide
We touched the stars, we mocked the grave
We moved into uncharted land
Fortune favors the brave
The more we find, the more we see, the more we come to learn
The more we explore, the more we shall return
Nothing is an accident
We are free to have it all
We are what we want to be
It's in ourselves to rise or fall
This is easy to believe
When distant places call to me
It's harder from the palace yard
Fortune favors the free
Oh oh, fortune favors the young
Oh oh, fortune favors the brave
