("Between the waves" by Ivan Aivazovsky)



The seventh chapter of "The Dam" is entitled "Flow" and presents our protagonist/narrator having passed the test, overcome the obstacle, levelled the dam, and moving forward into the dream, responding to the calling of the ocean.


The lyrics are almost done, although I'm not completely satisfied with the choruses :


1st verse
Have I ever been here ? / Memories I'm recalling
Of similar currents / And one ingenuous starling
Only doing the things / That kept his heart beating
Not much of a skipper / Misguided but well-meaning

Though it's a different stream / And time has made me wiser
I still have the same dream / The ocean is calling
I'm headed for the goal / No more changing the bearing
I have chosen the boat / I have chosen the river

1st chorus
Riding high I defy
The ordinary
Advancing into the dream

Still I can't clarify
Was it I at the helm ?
Did I really have a choice ?

2nd verse
I feel I could stay here / For all eternity
Purposeful and passionate / In creativity
Driven forth by the flow / Sailing effortlessly
Doing what I'm feeling / Is best for you and me

No trace of the old barrage / Completed its demise
A necessary passage / Into maturity
Still I am wondering / Never really knowing
This life I call my own / Could it have been otherwise ?

2nd chorus
Riding high I defy
The ordinary
Advancing into the dream

And I cannot deny
I found my inner light
Now at last I feel alright
