Water

As the desert sun burned hot upon my face
While drawing water in the middle of the day
Please give me a drink (That stranger's speaking to me)
My child do you think you could spare
Me some water (He must want more than water)

But you have crossed the line between us, me and you
(She is afraid, she is so broken)
Why when you asked me for water like you do
(This is her chance, she's ready now)
Oh but if you only knew
(He speaks with so much heart and)
Who it is that speaks to you
You would ask me for water
(I wanna know more of this water)

There is a living stream flowing from the deep
(How can it be free and eternal)
endless and eternal

Drink from the only spring where you take a drink
And never thirst again
(Can it set me free)
Let it set you free

So this water is a gift that you can give
(Please take it now it costs you nothing)
But if you only knew the life that I have lived
(I know the life that you have lived)
You can be different than before

(But then you took the shame, forgotten)
You can go and sin no more
(So this is how it feels to be forgiven)
My child, be forgiven

There is a living stream flowing from the deep
Endless and eternal
Drink from the only spring
Where you take a drink and never thirst again
Let it set you free
(Let it set you free)

My whole life has been in chains, a prisoner to this world
(My child, now go and tell)
Now at last this living water sets me free
(How at last this living water set you free)

There is a living stream flowing from the deep
Endless and eternal
Drink from the only spring where you take a drink
And never thirst again
Let it set you free. (Let it set me free)

Let it set you free. (Let it set me free)
