Original Song - Like a Seagull

This is maybe the first song I wrote... and it's maybe the best one of mine: for sure, is the one I love the most. It's been written in the 1998, while I was at the sea. Those years weren't easy, at all. I used to have many questions and doubts... and anger: I hadn't yet found The Answer. A while ago I changed a little part of the lyrics, so that they could better reflect my heart, the way it is now: less selfish (- I want... I want... I want... -), less focused on myself... more open to the endless love of God. Thank you for listening.

(c) Daniele Bergamini First version : 22-09-98 (Porto Garibaldi) [19:11] Like a seagull I am, up in the Blue: wings open wide, eyes looking far taking a breeze searching one another Sometimes, you see, trying to change, flying against wind, it seems I move not! This is my life: (to) abandon a sure earth, pointing down there, so far you can't see Below me the water Me, like any other... Look down and see silver crests and rough cliffs aren't so desirable, not I want for me I feel not sure I can't leave the wind or be trapped by waves! So I ask to myself When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? a beach where to lie? When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? my peace of mind? Like a seagull I am afraid in the Gray: body so cold, eyes almost closed, fighting the wild wind, fearing the incoming storm Sometimes, you see, trying to resist, flapping my wings, I can't fly away! [BRIDGE 2] This was my fault: ignoring the little. Expecting a lot of things I Left opportunities there, just behind me. Saying "Oh, if I had..." now, I'm in trouble. I remember those cliffs Now I see their great value and it's like I heard their call. But I wanted so more! How could I feel myself happy that way? And I sing to myself When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? a cure for my wounds? When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? a tear for my cries? Like a seagull I am, lost in the Black: I wasted all my strength, tied in myself. I feel my heart run while falling into Sea Now I'm praying to you, You, God of Winds and Seas, While waiting to drown, while gasping for air, While loosing myself in the embrace of my killer: he's always the strongest, he's always the winner. Now I want ask to you: "Do you know the meaning of our days? Why did you give this mind, to us, to dream for what we can't have?" But I cannot renounce! Not in this way! Spent all my life flying to where borns the day: I know well how to fight, how to bring the breeze to me! So I'll search for that wave! And the other! And the other! And I'm free! I am free! Free! Like a seagull I am, again in the Blue: trembling my body, left the storm behind. Maybe happier for the little But I still keep my dreams Like a seagull I am and no answers I have: now, just like before, but I gained a little more! 'Cause I know what's to be afraid 'Cause I know what's to be lost If I could pierce this fog, if I saw the rainbow till the end of my Time I would thank the only One! When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When I will reach for... I'll never leave my place! When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When I will reach for... I'll gaze at His Grace! When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When I will reach for... I'll just sing His Name! When will I reach for...? When will I reach for...? When I will reach for... the God of Winds and Seas! When will I reach for...? November 8, 2008: 1070 views!
