11 SUNDAY IN BELGIUM

We’re falling
Like snowflakes on the ocean
We’re tumbling
Like dead leaves to the ground
People
Will always be in motion
While Mother Earth
Keeps spinning round

Life is short
It’s been a long way
From the place
Where I was born
Open locks
Of my banjo case dangling
To the sound
Of a voice as clear as the morn

The light is dim
On a Sunday in Belgium
As the tears
Well up in my eyes
I’m drifting
Like an ice floe
Slowly bound
For southern skies

We’re falling...

Now and then
There’s a spark in the darkness
Now and then
You get warm in the cold
My heart is light
When I think of all the people
That I’ve met
That I could never forget
How could I ever forget?

Caímos
Como folhas voando no ar
Nós somos
Flocos de neve no mar
