Lyrics:
Sailing the Sahara
Longing for a dream where we are one
Sailing the Sahara
Longing for a place where we call home
No matter what we’ll seize it
And together we’ll achieve it
This dream to be as one
Is the hope that we’ve all longed

Chorus
Sailing the Sahara
Going through the distance with our hearts
Sailing the Sahara
We’re the same no matter where we’re from
Mile to mile, we’ll reach it
And together we’ll fulfill it
Our dream to be as one
Is the hope that we’ve all longed

Layari sahara
Semoga kitakan bersatu
Layari sahara
Mencari tapak ‘tuk berteduh
Kita kan laluinya
Kitakan genggaminya
Keinginan bersatu
Harapan berpadu.

Korus
Layari sahara
Menjejak jarak dengan hati
Layari sahara
Kita semua sama setanding
Sampai ke destinasi
Kita kan menghayati
Impian bersatu
Moga kan terkabul.

Bansuri Solo

Chorus
Sailing the Sahara
Longing for a dream where we are one
Sailing the Sahara
We’re the same no matter where we’re from
Kitakan laluinya
Kitakan genggaminya
Our dream to be as one
Is the hope that we all long
