Like The Sea And The Sky
Watching all the ships go by,
looking at the free birds in the sky,
I wish life was like the sea and the sky.
I could fly to freedom from society,
I could try to have a free conscience in me.
I could make friends in foreign lands,
their feelings and culture I could understand.
I could sail to the horizon of people’s heart
I could float to the point where their emotions did start,
then extinguish the flames of jealousy, in which men have burnt
and then teach them about the new love that I have learnt.
How I wish our lives were as big as the sea, and as open as the sky.
