lyrics

I sailed from a land
of oily rivers and open bridges
and I left behind true love

I see myself
in clouded water with lotus flowers
but my pale skin gives me away

I hear the waves
Smell the scent of burning wood
and with the tide of silent farewells, I go

I was born before the wind

Come, walk with me
along the shoreline and watch the water
as it flows back to the sea

Whisper my name
and move into my ancient heart
until the storm calls out to me

I hear the waves
Smell the scent of burning wood
and with the tide of silent farewells, I go

I was born before the wind

Smell the scent of burning wood
With the tide of silent farewells, I go

I was born before the wind
