To the sea, to the sea let me follow
To save me from burning and heal my sorrow
Taking the way of sand and water
The tide way, the last way, to love my Mother.
Down the dunes with sister and stranger
The wicked women who dance in their danger
Craving the blessings altogether
Of grasses and seaweed, shell and feather.
Allu mari, mi portati
Se voleti che mi sanati
Allu mari, alla via
Cosi m'ama la donna mia
Allu mari, allu mari
Mentre campo t'aggio amari
So in love does my lady enjoy me
That death by drowning cannot destroy me
Life on the tide will run before me
The long way, the gray way will cry my story.
