SECRET WATER

You wake up in the morning and you see you are an old man
You wake up in the morning and you see that you are dead
Or you find you are immortal under a dying sun
There’s a sadness woven in the heart of man

Oh she’s such a beauty but no you can’t go there
Oh no you can not love her you’re past that point in years
Though you sing the soul immortal under a dying sun
There’s a sadness woven in the heart of man

I too thirst for secret water
Searching for a jewel to hold the light
I too believe I was not born just to die

Mama talks to saviors in the story she’s been told
There’s no fear of failure when you’re bent on God’s abode
And know the soul immortal when the earth knot comes undone
Of the sadness woven in the heart of man
