The sky's ancient fog
Make butterflies out of green leaves.

Greet each other facing West,
Greet each other facing West...

Over the mountains I see".

And the seas are slowly dying,

The islands swing on the waves
And, today, they're holding each others hands,

A living language that I understand,
For we all speak the same
From Majorca to Alghero...
