Great Big Sea lyrics : "Demasduit Dream"

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


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

They only ran before us,
Driven by the strangers' will


I'm waiting by the landwash

Giant standing near
I see them coming always
Children 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 x2]
