MELISSAíS SONG

IT SEEMS AS THOUGH IíM IN A DREAM,

A PLAY HAS JUST BEGUN.

IíM STARING OUT AN OVAL WINDOW,

BLINDED BY THE SUN.

THE SCENE IS NO ILLUSION,

MY SENSES ARE ALL CLEAR.

HER LAUGHING FILLS THE SUNLIT ROOM,

BEWITCHING TO MY EARS.

 

OH WILL YOU TELL OUR FORTUNE,

IS THAT WHY YOUíVE APPEARED?

TELL US WHAT YOU SEE AHEAD,

RELEASE US FROM OUR FEARS.

AND WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN,

WILL THEIR FUTURE BE SECURE?

DO YOU SEE HOPE FOR HUMANKIND,

WILL WISDOM BE THE CURE?

 

SHE CAME TO ME AND TOUCHED MY FACE,

COMPASSION FILLED HER EYES.

SHE SAID THE WORLD WITHIN US,

IS SAD AND THICK WITH LIES.

HUMANITY HAS LOST ITSELF,

DRIFTING ON THE SEA.

WHILE CHOOSING TO BE ISLANDS,

OUR HEARTS CANNOT BE FREE.

 

DO YOU HAVE A POTION,

A SECRET REMEDY?

I THINK YOU KNOW THE PATH TO WALK,

YOU HAVE THE EYES TO SEE.

SHE SHOOK HER HEAD AND TOLD ME,

THERE IS NO DESTINY.

FATE EXISTS FOR THOSE TOO BLIND,

TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE FREE.

 

SHE SANG A SONG FOR THE HEAVENS,

AND THE CREATURES OF THE SEA.

SHE ASKED ME TO TAKE CARE OF THEM,

AS THEY WERE PART OF ME.

AND THOUGH I WAKE UP FROM THIS DREAM,

I KEEP HER MEMORY.

AND SING THIS SONG FOR EVERYONE,

FOR ALL ETERNITY.
