about

A samba jam, about meeting someone who seems as mysterious as a distant island, and wanting to get to know them better.

lyrics

When I look at you I see an island,
Waiting in the dawn before the light
When I look at you, I see my own self
Searching for a place to alight

When I look at you I see a white dove
Searching for a way to take flight
When I look at me I see a miner
Working day and night towards the light

There’s a place you and I can be
Hovering in the clouds above the sea
Floating in a place where only hope lives
Waiting for a place too far to see

When I look at you I see a postcard
Marking all the those days I spent with you
When I look at you I see you smiling
Waiting for the day I’m back with you

When I look at you I see myself
With a handful of pretty petals for your shelf
Hoping for a time when we can be alone
Hoping for a moment of your breath

Hoping for a chance to get to know you
Hoping for a moment of your breath
Hoping for a moment of your breath
