From the recording Go To The Water (Outside Eden)


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.
