Song Lyrics

Original english text




Overhead the albatross

Hangs motionless upon the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves

In labyrinths of coral caves

The echo of a distant time

Comes willowing across the sand

And everything is green and submarine.


And no-one called us to the land

And no-one knows the where’s or why’s

Something stirs and something tries

Starts to climb towards the light


Strangers passing in the street

By chance two separate glances meet

And I am you and what I see is me

And do I take you by the hand

And lead you through the land

And help me understand the best I can.


And no-one calls us to move on

And no-one forces down our eyes

And no-one speaks and no-one tries

And no-one flies around the sun


Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes

Inciting and inviting me to rise

And through the window in the wall

Come streaming in on sunlight wings

A million bright ambassadors of morning


And no-one sings me lullabies

And no-one makes me close my eyes

So I throw the windows wide

And call to you across the sky
