My friend, my friend, you are traveling
So many secrets are unraveling
Some other picture's coming into view
I 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
We flow and flow

I am a river baby,
I've got plenty of time
I don't know where I'm going
I'm just following the lines
There's just no telling where this river will flow
I got no choice in the matter, baby,
I just go where it goes
I'm making my 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 my 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 flow

Out on the beach today, I did not find
One single footstep that we left behind
So I went swimming in the deep blue sea
And I could feel that water all around me

'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, we are water
We are water, we are water
We are water, we are water
We are water
We flow and flow
We flow and flow
