In the hour
Of the morning I’ll fly back to Amazonas
Where the humming of the blossoms in the moonlight
Turns my tears into rivers to the sea

Time is over
Lullabies of wind and rain on my viola
Words of solitude are falling from my shoulder
Draining sorrow into rivers to the sea

I will cast a line for you
I will find a small canoe – for two

Wild dreaming
Like a heron high above the mirrored water
In a sunray sinking grasses feel the thunder
Rainbows beam the light for dreaming of new life

I will find a moonlight blue
Through the vines the stars will shine - for two

Time is over
Like a freedom flowing through the Amazonas
Nesting into our canoe alone together
As the waters lead us down toward the sea

You and me
Time to be free
