Children Of The Sun

Children Of The Sun

The Sallyangie

Sunrise shimmers the city walls with yellow light
Sunrise feeling with golden fingers, the edges of the night
There's a hush in the air, in his silver hair
King Solomon is my father

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah's sending children of the sun
I watch the boats go by as evening colours the sand
The rain is bringing tears from my lovers land
I watch the silver stars melt in love with the sea
I cry to the wind bring back my lover to me
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah's sending children of the sun

My lover's hands are whiter than the wings of a dove
His hair is softest fire that fall in heavenly love
His smile is a blue birds cry on a midsummer's morn
His kiss is the touch of the sun before the earth's new dawn.
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah's sending children of the sun

My lover used to bring me stars he found in the sand
I would lay the singing skies inside his tiny hand
Tonight the moon is dripping on the coloured river we knew
O take me where he lies cryin' in the mornin' dew

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah's sending children of the sun
I watch the boats go by as evening colours the sand
The rain is bringing tears from my lovers land
I watch the silver stars melt in love with the sea
I cry to the wind bring back my lover to me
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah's sending children of the sun
