All I see floats with the wind
All the miracles of the water
are the miracles never seen
Somehow my life now begins
This music that's been played through time
now starts to reach my feet
Feels like the flood of my needs
From the harmony of forever
Sound the melodies of the sea
And you will know on the way
I'm coming back to my enemies
I'm turning around
I'll be just coming back to my last days
I'm coming back to the sea!

So...won't you come with me, my friend?
Thrills...like we had before
Hope...never showing up the same
for a lonely man

Since the day we left the land,
we've been anxious on approach
Captain kept showing his plans:
"Under sail we go!"
Deep the ocean's blue I stare
The reflections of my soul
We have with us a special guest,
and for him we made a toast

Carolina IV took a river to the sky
Seven men on board taking part
To take their hearts around
All around, around the world!

All I can recall that day
on that very day for sure
All hands up against the haze
as we attempted the return

Carolina IV took the river to the sky
One man less on board - human dreams
have sometimes cost their lives
All their lives dreaming

I've been such a fool
I've been so afraid
From my heart to you I say:
“I'll be here to stay!”

Nothing much left from the boat
Many years have been and gone
Still I can't forget the past
and the ones I left at home

Carolina IV took the river to the sky
Windy whistling nights
made me sail right into the wind's eye
Now I'll die singing:

I've been such a fool
I've been so afraid
From my heart to you I say:
“I'll be here to stay!”

All I see floats with the wind
Somehow my life now begins
Feels like the flood of my needs
All I see flows in and floats with the wind

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by Angra. I really think it's amazing. It's about the Holy Land, Brazil, like the rest of this CD. Mostly about going out to sea and stuff, pretty self explanitory.

    General CommentIn fact they explore things from nowadays, like violence and subjects very actual in metaphors of the 1500's and that time.
    It's a very good song this one, as almost every Angra song...

    General CommentThis song every time i hear it takes me to the ocean but i still cant find the meaning behind it, i think is about the beauty of the world and its magic like many other of Angra songs, also to face the world and not to hide from it (sorry about my english)
