Invisible Strings
(Nina Widjaja)

Little leaf, all alone,
just take your chance tonight.
Leave your tree and make a cut.
And, please, enjoy your flight.
Couldn’t you get enough water?
No, I’m not thirsty, I’m dying,
I will go home …
I will go home …

… to the sky,
where I can fly like a feather
taken away by the wind
on invisible strings.
The moon,
she keeps an eye on me –
the only one she seems to be.
The earth, my mother,
she makes the trees grow.
So, brother, don’t you know,
she keeps her arms around the roots of life,
our homeland, our paradise.

Don’t be anxious, don’t feel blue,
just be aware of being alive,
because of every step you fall
in paradise you’ll rise.
Sail with the heaven-sent children,
they whisper you softly to sleep
with their lullaby ...
with their lullaby ...

… to the sky,
where I can fly like a feather
taken away by the wind
on invisible strings.
The moon,
she keeps an eye on me –
the only one she seems to be.
The earth, my mother,
she makes the trees grow.
So, brother, don’t you know,
she keeps her arms around the roots of life,
our homeland, our paradise.

Little leaf, homeland is near,
open your eyes, wake up.
Look, the moon sends you a kiss,
remember where where you grew up.
A ray of starlight touches your skin
and now you’re there where you never have been
and now you’re there where you never have been before ...

In the sky,
where I can fly like a feather
taken away by the wind
on invisible strings.
The moon,
she keeps an eye on me –
the only one she seems to be.
The earth, my mother,
she makes the trees grow.
So, brother, don’t you know,
she keeps her arms around the roots of life,
our homeland, our paradise.
