play Love Is the Water

from Waiting for the Water BUY

You say your heart's been turned to stone
You say you wanna be left alone
You say love only made you weep and moan
Well, let me tell you something that you know in your bones

Refrain:
Love is the water that wears down the rock
Love is the water that wears down the rock
Love is the power that won't be stopped
Love is the water that wears down the rock

You say your soul's like a dry riverbed
Stopped waiting for the water long ago, you said
You better pray all night for the rain instead
Love comes like a tidal wave, over your head

Refrain

You say, waiting for love takes too long
It dulls a sharp mind, weakens the strong
Well, you may be right, but you may be wrong
Cause love can make a mountain come tumbling down

Refrain

The river washes over every woman and man
Feet in the gravel, and mud in your hands
Nothing can stand against love's command
Every boulder turns into a grain of sand

Refrain
