I know you, O lady from a distant land, I certainly do!
You live on a far away strand, O lady of a distant land.
I’ve seen you on autumnal morns; on spring evenings too
I’ve seen you in my heart’s core, O lady of a distant land
Ears focused on the sky, I’ve listened to your lullaby
I’ve given myself fully to you, O lady of a distant land
Crisscrossing the universe, I’ve come to a new world
I’m now a visitor at your door, O lady of a distant land!
