We're all made of water.
Water and stardust and dirt and dreams.
Everything is connected.

This version of "Look to the Water" will be available from now through the Spring Equinox this year, 2018. Drink deeply and enjoy!

May we never be thirsty.

lyrics

Ice makes for stillness, not weakness.
I’ll rise and I’ll dance with the spring,
dauntless creator of canyons.
Look to the water for change.
Look to the water for change
Look to the water for change.

I’ll sweep down to comfort your burning.
I’ll dance up the dust of the drought.
I’m here in the hum of your heartbeat.
I’m there in the river’s wild route.
I’m here in the hum of your heartbeat.
I’m there in the river’s wild route.

O, may we never be thirsty,
trickle and bayou and stream,
ocean, creator, destroyer,
warm in the womb where we dream!

The flowers all open in glory
the moment that I come along
to wake up the heart of the desert
and nourish the fields with my song.
I’ll wake up the heart of the desert
and nourish the fields with my song.

Depth makes for stillness and wonder.
I rise and I rage with the storm.
Remember we’re all made of water,
meant to rise and to fall and transform.
Remember we’re all made of water,
We rise and we fall and transform.
We rise and we fall and transform
We rise and we fall and transform.
We rise and we fall and transform.
and we look to the water.
Look to the water
Look to the water
Look to the water
