lyrics

She was a child of sun and rain
Neither light nor really water
As bright and warm as her father
As spontaneous and elusive as her mother

To the glaciers, the lakes and the rivers
She never was part of the band
How could she ever find a place
Within the rhythm they shared?

She carries in her the rainbow mark
She is the sun and the rain as one, as one
She carries in her the best of two worlds
She carries with her their best intentions

The stars would only come out at night
While she was sound asleep and out of sight
If she’d ever known they existed
She’d have reached out to them

She carries in her the rainbow mark
She is the sun and the rain as one, as one
She carries in her the best of two worlds
She carries with her their best intentions

I see you, I see myself in her
She is the sun and the rain as one, as one
I see our future, a future as her
She is the sun and the rain
And she’s neither and both at once

She was a child of sun and rain
Neither light nor really water
