• One breath away from mother Oceanðòa
    Your nimble feet make prints in my sands
    You have done good for yourselves
    Since you left my wet embrace and crawled ashore

    Every boy, is a snake is a lily
    Every pearl is a lynx, is a girl
    Sweet like harmony made into flesh

    You dance by my side
    Children sublime

    You show me continents
    I see the islands
    You count the centuries, I blink my eyes
    Hawks and sparrows race in my waters
    Stingrays are floating across the sky
    Little ones, my sons and my daughters

    Your sweat is salty
    I am why
    I am why
    I am why

    Your sweat is salty
    I am why
    I am why
