survivor song

my family on the coral sea
cling to me, cling to me
warm north wind bring no pain
no cloud nor rain
beg that south wind blow
your ships to me


I come to your freedom's shore
with my children four
take these four gifts from me
my heart implores
don't let them sleep tonight
on the ocean floor

I kissed them through my blinding tears
cried seven more years
a table set in an empty room
my life is empty now too
the sun rises on the southern sky
like a burning eye I stay or die
they say to me I'm the foreign one
well that's just plain to see
that I only chose for fun
what has come to me
and I would declare
if I had a voice
we had no choice
we had no choice
