lyrics

Here on this island you are free
Free to see it all more clearly
You’re standing all alone with the view stretched out before you
Go wrap this sacred place around you

The river flows downward it will reach the sea
And, the river flows it is pure and clear and running free
Oh but I can hardly swim
I’ll wrap this sacred place around me.

And tears sit waiting like the sky before the rain
The space between us is so dense it weighs down on my skin
And oh but I can hardly breath
I’ll wrap this sacred Earth around me.

The river flows downward it will reach the sea
And, she has climbed up to a rock and it’s too high for me
And Oh what happens if I fall?
I’ll wrap this sacred Earth around me.

The Earth she sleeps
And the wind blows you off your feet
The rain seeps deeply
Into the ground beneath my feet

The burn it flows downward it will reach the sea
The burn it flows, it is brown and cool and running free
Oh it flows on to the sea
Always downward to the sea

Here on this island you are free
Free to see it all more clearly
You’re standing all alone with the view stretched out before you
Go wrap this sacred place around you
