We Share the Earth

A sweet song from the Songs from the Sea album, not too different from "Dreaming", that describes Ariel's feelings on the similarities and differences between life as a mermaid and life as a human. The Ariel that sings this song knows way too much about human life than is expected of her, but I'll let that pass because Jodi Benson's voice is incredible.

(printable version)

You know, even though we've never met I feel like I know you.

The place you live is warm and dry
And the sky is soft and blue
The place I live is cold and wet
And there's a different view

We share the earth
Every summer day and sunset
Each starry night when day is through
We share the earth
Every single wave that runs up to the shore
Is sent from me and touches you

So I send my message out across the sea
On a wave, the one that brought your note to me

We share the earth
Every big white cloud you see
Belongs to you, belongs to me
We share the earth

The place you live has lots of air
And some lovely things that fly
But it's so very different here
To world goes floating by

We share the earth
Eery forest, every ocean
Each drop of rain, each bit of dew
We share the earth
Every mountain you can see
Belongs to you, belongs me
We share the earth

We share the earth
Every big white cloud you see
Belongs to you, belongs to me
We share the earth (We share the earth)

We share the earth (We share the earth)
We share the earth (We share the earth)...
