"Saltwater" as written by Julian Lennon, Leslie Spiro and Mark Spiro....
We are a rock revolving
Around a golden sun
We are a billion children rolled into one
So when I hear about the hole in the sky
Saltwater wells in my eyes

We climb the highest mountain
We'll make the desert bloom
We're so ingenious we can walk the moon
But when I hear of how the forest have died
Saltwater wells in my eyes

I have lived for love
But now that's not enough
For the world I love is dying And now I'm crying
And time is not a friend (no friend of mine)
As friends we're out of time
And it's slowly passing by ....right before our eyes


We light the deepest ocean
Send photographs of Mars
We're so enchanted my how clever we are
Why should one baby feel so hungry she cries
Saltwater wells in my eyes

I have lived for love
But now that's not enough
For the world I love is dying And now I'm crying
And time is not a friend (no friend of mine)
As friends we're out of time
And it's slowly passing by ....right before our eyes

We are a rock revolving
Around a golden sun
We are a billion children rolled into one
What will I think of me the day that I die
Saltwater wells in my eyes
Saltwater wells in my eyes

    General CommentThis song is beautiful- it's about how the human race is so smart in so many ways-- we can go to the moon, climb the highest mountain, and send photographs back from mars, yet there are still people starving, there's a hole in the ozone layer, and we are cutting down oxygen providing trees in the rainforest and other places, also killing innumerable other living things. He could add to that now with polluting the shit out of the world and using up it's resources, and dramatically attenuating the soil quality.
    So no hippie-chick it's not about him and his dad, sry.
