From the recording Go To The Water (Outside Eden)
GO TO THE WATER
Go to the water, walk down slow,
Where the rock is battered, the branch hangs low
Where the sea is rough, the sun burns hotter
To know love, go to the water.
You walked through the garden in the early Spring,
Where the wild blossom was a growing thing
You pressed that flower in your favorite book,
Where it kept its color, but never bore fruit.
Nothing so smooth as the side of a thorn
Nothing so calm as the eye of a storm
To young love, nothing so sweet
As the sound of a promise no-one could keep.
It laughs and shouts where it touches land
It holds the world like a loving hand
It’s a bed of pearls on a moonlit night
Full of life, no end in sight.
