Sinheresy the island of salt and grass testo



I was just a child when my mother


took me to that train


In her wistful eyes she knew


we wouldn't see soon again


Slowly through the countryside


the landscape blent in mist


but suddenly oh, such a sight


and my heart missed a beat


Rising from the foam


as if by magic, a city appeared


where boats, black as pitch


and white as ice, reigned supreme


The majestic church


threw its shadow over all


and like a lofty guardian


the bell tower rang its toll


"I am the island of salt and grass


I am the island of gold and glass


A father's caress on your tired head


I will take care of you


and give you all the things you couldn't have"


In the entrance of the school


there was a swarm of kids


All dressed like little sailors


I'd have become one of these


I felt misplaced but a companion


took me by the hand


Oh, so short and yet so intense


it was your life, my friend


"I am the island of salt and grass


I am the island of sun and wax


A heartening smile when you feel sad


I will take care of you


and give you all the things you couldn't have"


Saying that I'm grateful is not enough


to express what you meant and still mean


Though many years have gone


you're an indelible part of me


My beloved island of salt and grass


My beloved island of tears and laughs


A mistress of life through my best days


I will keep your image dear


A memory out of time that will never fade
