Lyrics

TO WATER

Stopped watching for the current
River moved me to the side of fear
Chose to be lost here

LEANING IN
FALLING IN
SPINNING IN
GIVING IN TO WATER

Can?t see beyond the chasm
River holds me dark and light
Sun and light, dark and light

LEANING IN
FALLING IN
SPINNING IN
GIVING IN TO WATER

Fistfuls of white river
Took me up and pushed me down
Violently set me free

LEANING IN
FALLING IN
SPINNING IN
GIVING IN TO WATER

Blue green river washed my old skin new
Scoured away the contemplation
No hesitation

LEANING IN
FALLING IN
SPINNING IN
GIVING IN TO WATER

Row away from that curving line of purpose
Find an eddy, Watch the current pass
I can hide from the inside

SLIDING IN
HOLDING ON
BREATHING IN, IN YOUR WATER
