This green island is like a boat, floating in the moonlight. My darling, you too are floating in the sea of my heart. Let the sound of my song follow the breeze, blowing open the curtain of your window. Let my love follow the flowing water, endlessly pouring out its feelings for you. The long shadows of the palm trees cannot conceal my love; the bright beauty of the moonlight casts its brilliance into my heart. This green island night is so calm and serene my darling, why are you silent, saying nothing?
Vienna Teng sings Harbor, from her album Warm Strangers, at the Independent in San Francisco, CA on December 23, 2006. This is a beautiful new arrangement with Alex Wong of The Animators on cajon, snare, cymbals, and glockenspiel.
