lyrics
I’ve never seen the sea before
My home was in an ocean of sand
I’ve left it behind now,
There’s nothing left there anyhow
My mother said to me
Head for the northern coast
And find
A boat to take you away from here

I’ve been sailing since I was six
The sea is my second home
Now I’m sixteen
I’m setting out alone
My father said to me
Stick close to the coast
Or the current
Might take me away from here

I've never seen so many people before
As are camped along the coast
But I won't be here long
I gave all the money
My mother made
To some men
Who said they had a boat
To take me away from here

I saw the boats on the news again
If you can even call them that
Overflowing with people
Hoping for help and home
My father bought
This beautiful boat
Just for me
That could take me anywhere

So why can't we
Sail past Lampedusa?
Where are we
Supposed to go?
How can it
Be a crime
To try to save
Lives?

I'd never seen the sea before
My home was in an ocean of sand
I've left it behind me
There's nothing left there for me
The men said to me
Your in charge now
So go
Take them away from here.

So why can't we
Sail past Lampedusa?
Where are we
Supposed to go?
How can it
Be a crime
To try to save
Lives?
