Photographer's Note

All The World Is Green


He:
I fell into the ocean
When you became my wife
I risked it all against the sea
To have a better life
Marie you're the wide blue sky
And men do foolish things
You turn kings into beggars
And beggars into kings
Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
Let's pretend we can bring back the old days again
And all the world is green
She:
Let me lie about it all
Call back yesterday
We lay down in a shady grove
With the yellow buds of May
Now the shadows are getting longer
Winter's moving in
It is colder than I remember
That it's ever been
Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
Let's pretend we can bring back the old days again
And all the world is green
She:
The face forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The questions begs the answer
Can you forgive me somehow
Maybe when our story's over
We'll go where it's always spring
The band is playing our song again
And all the world is green
Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
Let's pretend we can bring back the old days again
And all the world is green
He:
When the moon is yellow silver
On the things that summer brings
It's a love you'd kill for
And all the world is green
He is balancing a diamond
On a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our grave
When all the world is green

I took that image coming back from a dive outside the reef in the ocean, during the long travel back on a Dhony.
