This is a song about the promise of freedom, as shone in nature, as it is in each of us, and how even though it may seem that problems in other parts of the world are separate from us, we are as connected to them as the we are to the water that touches every continent across the planet. No matter where we live, we are all connected by the seas.


Connected by the Seas

Bravely walking
Everyone’s talking
That birds are flapping their wings

Feathers falling
A silent dawning
Of freedom in the skies

Brought from the shell of a seed
Rooted in the soils of our countries
Connected by the seas

Together we’re waking
In the morning baking
The bread that is making us free

Alongside working with
Respect that is nurturing
The girls bringing natural beauty

The young they are growing
Rooted in the soils of our countries
Connected by the seas

Taking care of the
One to each side of
Us, we can all be free

Sun’s light is waiting
To be used for growing
To stop the scorching of seeds

The elders before us, the trees
Rooted in the soils of our countries
Connected by the seas
Waiting for remembering
