The stream sings it to the river, the river sings it to the sea
And the sea sings it to the boat that carries you and me.

CHORUS
Somos el barco, somos el mar, you navego en ti, tu navegas en mi
We are the boat, we are the sea, I sail in you, you sail in me

And the boat that we are sailing in was built by many hands
And the sea that we are sailing on, it touches every sand.

CHORUS

The voyage has been long and hard, yet we are sailing still
With a song to help us pull together if we only will.

CHORUS

So with our hopes we raise the sails to face the wind once more
And with our hearts we chart the waters never sailed before.

CHORUS
