Salty tears
And salty sea
Washing in and pouring out
Like the world that you mean to me
Waves of stories writ in sand
Where’s my rock, where’s my open hand?
Salty fears in this heart again

And clear as these tears
The tui sings
Well nature’s favourite music box
Clearing its springs oh in the Wellington wind
Deep convention runs so true
But so does blood and aren’t I one of you?
So this tui’s singing blue
Oh so blue

And distance far
Distance close
Don’t tell you when you learn to fly
A two-way ticket may never bring you home
Same old story, a different view
Can’t see the grass through the branches you grew
So this tui’s singing blue
Oh so blue
Oh so blue
