Close to the Water - Kate Reid - August 2010

 

We set sail on the open sea

And all those horror stories you told me

That happened to you when you were small

Somehow you kept on rowing through it all

 

Chorus:

And it's good to be close to the water sometimes

It's good to cry so don't dry your eyes

And it's good to be close to the water sometimes

Oh water, it moves you by

 

I'm sorry she didn't love you the way she ought to

I'm sorry he wasn't the one you thought he was

I'm sorry those people came and took you away

But maybe, it was better that way

 

Chorus:

And it's good to be close to the water sometimes

It's good to cry so don't dry your eyes

And it's good to be close to the water sometimes

Oh water, it moves you by

 

Chorus Break

 

Bridge:

I need to say how resilient you are

That you came back from all those childhood wars

And I can see those little sparks in your eyes

And I'm truly glad that you're alive

 

Chorus:

And it's good to be close to the water sometimes

It's good to cry so don't dry your eyes

And it's good to be close to the water sometimes

Oh water, it moves you by
