saltwater lyrics – julian lennon

we are a rock revolving
around a golden sun
we are a billion children
rolled into one
so when i hear about
the hole in the sky
saltw*ter wells in my eyes

we climb the highest mountain
we’ll make the desert bloom
we’re so ingenious
we can walk on the moon
but when i hear of how
the forests have died
saltw*ter wells in my eyes

i have lived for love
but now that’s not enough
for the world i love is dying
(and now i’m crying)
and time is not a friend
(no friend of mine)
as friends we’re out of time
and it’s slowly p*ssing by
right before our eyes

we light the deepest ocean
send photographs of mars
we’re so enchanted by
how clever we are
why should one baby
feel so hungry she cries
saltw*ter wells in my eyes

i have lived for love
but now that’s not enough
for the world i love is dying
(and now i’m crying)
and time is not a friend
(no friend of mine)
as friends we’re out of time
and it’s slowly p*ssing by
right before our eyes

we are a rock revolving
around a golden sun
we are a billion children
rolled into one
what will i think of me
the day that i die
saltw*ter wells in my eyes
saltw*ter wells in my eyes
