about

This song is about some news I once read about an accident involving a mother and her son being on a peer during a storm at Naples, Italy. The mother drowned but saved her son's life. I always wondered why she would have exposed the child to such risks and the lyrics are a kind of explanation I gave to myself.
The idea to recreate movements of the waves in music can be placed back a few years ago, during a fantastic late-summer journey with some components of the band

lyrics

come my son, breathe this air
saltiness - of thousand years
no one these waves can master
but despite their might, this is not anger

well I know nothing of your 'morrow
you'll know joy, you'll know sorrow
you're gonna frolic and be strong
then you'll drift and crawl and go wrong

your heart is like this old sea
hard to steer - unpredictable
great tempests will fluster it
loves and losses - inevitable

gaze towards where winds weaken
I'm here, ever-safe haven
let the sea rule, feel the storm
may your passions take this form

your heart is like this old sea
hard to steer - unpredictable
great tempests will fluster it
loves and losses - inevitable
ev'ry sea's its own sky above
tied together, as in love
they hug constantly in surfs
now these waves they frighten me, too

me for him

Now I'll face this darkness gladly
still, 'cos that I taught you enough
I'll face this dark...
