Deep in the past, like the beginning of something new

One part of the star falls into the sea

Take a pause and began

Staying alive for numbers of years

The figure takes one the shape of another being

Join a ring together

And I, the one who returned to the sea

And I, the one who stayed on the land

You and I share the same parts
