Lyrics
One breath away from mother ocean
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
I am why
