lyrics

Folks, I’ve come to tell you

Right now

This is goodbye

I’m sailing out today

It’s been going on

For a while

I felt that I

Was lacking air somehow

And I’ll go

And I’ll run

And I hope

I’ll catch the sun

I will open

All my windows wide

Searching for what

Was missing in my lungs

There, I’ve heard

A thousand smiles await

Small tiny stars

My journey will unveil

And I’ll go

And I’ll run

And I hope

I’ll catch the sun

Never mind the scratches

On my knees

Nor the sweat rolling

Down my cheeks

As I’ll climb

I’ll pass every top

Without a moan

And go running wild

As soon as the road

Goes down

And I’ll go

And I’ll run

And I hope

I’ll catch the sun

Lakes and valleys

Greatest fires

Coldest breezes

What you get

Is what you give

And what I get

Is what I give to you

And I fill find a way

To bring you back

The sun in pieces

Watching it

Until it burns my skin

Sounds and colors

Smells and flavours

Life reminding you

That you’re hers

Feeling the crowd

Joining its prayers

Hearing the wind

And what it whispers

Feeling the bond

Slowly building up

Between a wiser me

And what it means

To be part of mankind

And I will get it

All for you

And I will get it

All for you

Let me be guided

By the flow

And down the river

I will go

And I’ll go

And I’ll run

And I hope

I’ll catch the sun

Automne 2012, Asie du Sud-Est.

Chanson écrite pour Gaby, Raoul et Edouard, partis six mois descendre la rivière du Mékong à vélo !
