Letra:

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.
