In between the river and the sea
no one knows what village they are from, no one moves to cross or stay
so I float I paddle along
and I don't pretend to know my fate
til I see the seven swans

Am I right or am I wrong?
Do I wander, do I have a home?
Do the angels seek me where I roam,
roam along?

When the seven swans arrive
feed them tea and tremble pie
stroke their brilliant beaks and sigh

this old man was ninety nine and
he said such a long goodbye
that I left before he died
and just because ya see me that way
doesn't mean I can't be strong
I was made to love someone

somewhere in my hand I held your face
somewhere in my womb I held your fate, held until its dying day
