You are the rolling ocean

You are the mighty sea

You are the breath that brings each new day to me

You are what you are, you are

You be what you are, you be what you are


Some came to conquer

Some came to understand

Some came to live their lives as best they can

Me, I looked up to the stars to find my way

But I was young and I got them mixed up

And so forgot my name

As I tried to remember you were standing next to me

While others came seeking power

You, you had come to set them free




Women of salt and earth

They tell the same story

They saw you walking, wounded

Wearing rags of glory

And when you rejoiced they saw you smiling at your rejoicing

When you wept they saw you smiling at your weeping

When you smiled they saw you smiling at your smiling

And you said “That’s the way I’ve survived these years of dust and blood.”




Suffer little children

Suffer sister, brother too

Suffer mother, father

That’s all the world can promise you

In our hearts we feel it

A mighty dream is coming true

Hold on and we’ll dream it

Keep it up we’re going to push it through

Don’t give it up, don’t give it up
