lyrics

[Tashikere x5] x4

There was a King
Lord of the deserts and the seas
Ruled over treasures men and spring
With only one heart to please

Tashikere Tashikere Tashikere

Ta-shi-ke-re___
Her soul was pure as dreams of flying
The heir of a buried paradise
Princess of endless smiles

At night she used to pray:

Sarah:
“Oh I wish that I could see the world
From above embrace what no one heard
Oh I wish I was a timeless bird
But it's just a dream____”

[Tashikere x5] x4

4 bars instrumental

And then one day
Tashikere was gone and lost to sight
The King searched the deserts through the night
Crying her name away______ .

Tashikere Tashikere Tashikere

Ta-shi-ke-re___

Imploring spirits where she stood
He learned she was captured by the moon
Taken away for life

At night He used to pray:
“Oh I wish that I could see the world
From above embrace what no one heard
Oh I wish I was a timeless bird
But it's just a dream____”
