I have lived here for just 100 days
Surrounded by nine children, in an apartment with a view
of parking lots and mountains topped with snow.
Here I am in Italy
I've walked these streets since arriving in November
Surrounded by Italian voices, in a city that sleeps at siesta
I'm all alone at 3pm in this cafe.
Here I am in Europe
I crossed the ocean in my sleep
Surrounded by my family, never knowing what will be
I awaken daily to a dream
Here I am in this cafe
I've taken the last sip of my cold latte
Surrounded by empty sugar packets, as the music plays
In a distant city, in a distant land, feeling far away
