A F#mI dreamt I saw a woman,
A F#mStanding by the strand,
A F#mWaiting for her people,
A F#mTo come in from the land.
A F#mWaiting there for seven days,
A F#mShe built a fire in the sand,
A F#mWaiting for her people,
A F#mTo come in from the land.
She had the look of a refugee, Hiding in her eyes, And when I tried to talk to her, She answered with a cry, And pointed to the water, Out beyond the harbour line, Where a thousand ships lay waiting, They lay waiting for my sign.
D A D ABut I remember days of sunlight,
D A G AWith my father by my side,
D A D A And the children ran before us,
D A G ALike the foam upon the tide.
We ran like frightened partridge, When the strangers came to talk, Bringing sickness 'round them, And the thunder in their walk. We ran into the valleys, And we ran into the hills, The young they ran before us, Driven by a stranger's will. I remember days of sunlight, With my father by my side; And the children ran before us, Like the foam upon the tide. I'm waiting by the land wash, With the giant standing near, I see them coming always, All the children and their fear. I'm waiting on my blanket, And the giant waits with me, And I will wait here always, As they fill the endless sea. I remember days of sunlight, With my father by my side; And the children ran before us, Like the foam upon the tide. I remember days of sunlight, With my father by my side; And the children ran before us, Like the foam upon the tide. I remember days of sunlight, And I remember children; And I remember days of sunlight, And I remember ... I remember ... I remember ...
