One of Those Moods...

I love the metaphor of change here & how it reminds me of being a parent - this is me talking to my babies. 

(and Patty sings this like no other - upbeat, fast tempo with serious guitar action and soulful heartache)

My friend, my friend, you are traveling
So many secrets are unraveling
Some other picture's coming into view
I've seen the water washing over you
And the water's speaking now, it speaks your name
I hear it talking to me, sometimes when it rains
Telling me a story of joy or pain
But I've got no regrets baby, I've got no shame

'Cause we are water.  We flow and flow.
I feel you pouring through every inch of my soul
And I really must tell you this, baby before you go
We are water


You are a river, baby, you've got plenty of time
You don't know where you're going, you're just following the lines
There's just no telling where this river will flow
You got no choice in the matter, baby, you just go where it goes
You're making your bed tonight, right under this cloud
Sometimes the lightening's so frightening
Sometimes the thunder's so loud
Still, I know this tide is always kissing your heels
Someimes I think I'm drowning in all these things that I feel

And we are water, we flow and flow
I feel you pouring through every inch of my soul
And I really must tell you this, baby before you go
We are water
We are water
We are water
We flow and we flow
