Demesduit Dream Submit Correct Lyrics

(written by Bob Hallett)

I dreamt I saw a woman standing by the strand,
Waiting for her people to come in from the land.
Waiting there for seven days, she built a fire in the sand
Waiting for her people to come in from the land.

She had the look of a refugee hiding in her eyes
And when I tried to talk to her she answered with a cry
And pointed to the water out beyond the harbour line
Where a thousand ships lay waiting, they lay waiting for my sign.

CHORUS:
I remember days of sunlight
With my father by my side
And the children, ran before us
Like the foam upon the tide

We ran like frightened partridge, when the strangers came to talk
Bringing sickness 'round them and the thunder in their walk
We ran into the valleys and we ran into the hills
The young ran before us driven by the strangers' will

CHORUS

I'm waiting by the landwash with the giant standing near
I see them coming always, the cChildren in their fear
I'm waiting on my blanket and the giant waits with me
And I will wait here always as they fill the endless sea

CHORUS
repeat
