Flowing water, carry me away
On the tide I ride upon the waves
Get tossed in the seas of life
Over and over
I rise to the surface
On top of the
Silent water all around me
Watching waves dance on the sun light's beam
Caught in a moment of time
Holding my breath
And I'm waiting
For the storm to pass by
Blessed water flowing through my veins
For the peace I found below the waves
Learned my lesson before
I don't need to tell you
My story, I'll just come up

Earth Day is celebrated every year since 1970 on April 22.
Every day is Earth Day around here, and this year is particularly special because we’re releasing a song called “Water” to celebrate the occasion.
Water is one of the most important elements for Life.
Our bodies are mostly water, and of course The Earth provides us with her natural resource in the form of oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, ponds, and estuaries.
My dad told me that when he was growing up back in the 1950s, people would have laughed at a person suggesting that one day people would buy bottled drinking water.
Today the reality is that people everywhere are in need of fresh, clean drinking water.
In addition, so much enjoyment is related to water – whether it’s a lake, stream, pond, river or ocean, water is a vital source of life for our beautiful planet.
On top of the physical importance of water, there’s a symbolic side of water that goes even deeper.
In poetry, water is often a symbol of emotions. In the lyrics to this song, “Water,” you can find some reference to this kind of water – a celebration of water in all its sacred forms.
