Open Sails

Light into your eyes

Dreams deep in your heart

Ready for a trip

Sharing our time

 

If you give me your hand

Faster I will go there

Much further with you

I will arrive

 

We are in the same sea

Sailing with open sails

To islands of peace

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

 

As great explorers

Of languages and traditions

Hear long stories

Of new populations

 

 

If you open your heart

Also, I will tell you

My ancient story

That looks like yours

A bit

 

We are in the same sea

Sailing with open sails

To islands of peace

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

La la la la

 

Ready to meet

Beyond all the borders

With the same heart

A new brother

 

We will build together

Among diversities

A big kaleidoscope

Of a thousand identities
