Everlasting Water (Music & Lyrics by Steve Laurie: 2/22/2010)

The tap don't run and the well's run dry
I ain't seen rain in ten times a fortnight
My bones are dry and my skin's all cracked
I need a cup of water as a matter of fact

Take me down to the river, son
Go on and throw me into the swimming hole
Fill my cup to the top; don't stop
With that everlasting water that lifts me up and floats my soul

The air is dry and my lips are parched
My orchard looks like a desert yard
My canteen's turned itself into rust
I need a cup of water or I'll turn to dust

Take me down to the river, son
Go on and throw me into the swimming hole
Fill my cup to the top; don't stop
With that everlasting water that lifts me up and floats my soul

Everlasting water of life flow to me and pick me up
Carry me like a spilling wave; sail me on to a better place

Take me down to the river, son
Go on and throw me into the swimming hole
Fill my cup to the top; don't stop
With that everlasting water that lifts me up and floats my soul
