Cool, Clear Water

This song is by Bonnie Raitt and appears on the album Longing in Their Hearts (1994).

I want to feel my earth turn over, baby
In this hardened Winter ground
Feel my earth turn over, darling
'Til I'm rootless and unbound
I want to feel my body tremble
When there's no one else around
Just this cool, clear water running
In this love that I've found

Hey, baby
See how it can be
Every time you reveal yourself to me
I'll come running

I want to feel myself go under, baby
Where the deepest river bleeds
I want to feel it pull me under, darling
Until it drops me to my knees
I want to know that I can find you
When there's no more eyes to see
In this cool, clear water running
You'll come running to me

Hey, baby
All my life I have known there's something more
A love to blind me like the Sun
Deep in dreams, I will wash up on your shore
Now I know that you're the one

When I feel my baby calling
It's like a whisper in the sand
And when the softest rain is falling, darling
I will crumble in your hand
And when all that's left is wonder
And no need to understand
Well, this cool, clear water running
Will be all that I am
