(Music & Lyrics: Jenny & Martin Schaub)

All these years I’ve worked so hard
I’ve fought a losing battle against stone
A penny here, a penny there
Could never be enough to build a home

Look to the west, my love
We’ll start anew. I swear we won’t regret it
No harm will come to you
I know, ’cause I won’t let it

Someday we’ll return again
But now here’s only sickness and despair
Someday we’ll return, you say
It’s time we seek our fortunes over there

Look to the west, my love
A sky as red as fire, the sun is setting
No harm will come to you
I know, ’cause I won’t let it

Twenty days of filth and dirt
Of being sick and trying to survive
Twenty days of rolling waves
And losing hope of reaching land alive

Look to the west, my love
A sky as red as fire, the sun is setting
No harm will come to you
I know, ’cause I won’t let it

Wake up, love. A sign of land
I think it’s our new homeland that we see
Ellis Island to the left,
And there, the statue of sweet liberty

Look to the west, my love
We’ll start a new. I swear we won’t regret it
No harm will come to you
I know, ’cause I won’t let it
