This song was first released on the It’s About Time Album. It is the only album it has been released on.

There’s somethin’ about the ocean rising up to meet the shoreline
Somethin’ about a river the way it runs to meet the sea
There’s somethin’ about a rainfall and it’s like the gift of living
There’s somethin’ about that water that makes me sing

Oh somethin’ about the mountains rising right straight up to heaven
And somethin’ about a canyon in the shade of a cottonwood tree
Somethin’ about the desert in the afterglow of evening
There’s somethin’ about the west that makes me sing

There’s somethin’ about the way you love me baby
There’s somethin’ about the way your lips meet mine
There’s somethin’ about the way you like to touch me
It really turns me on and makes my little light shine

There’s somethin’ about the way you love me baby
There’s somethin’ about the way your lips meet mine
There’s somethin’ about the way you like to touch me
It really turns me on and makes my little light shine

There’s somethin’ about the forest in the latter days of August
There’s somethin’ about the country on the very first day of springtime
There’s somethin’ about a wheatfield, oh you know I love the prairie
There’s somethin’ about the land that makes me sing
