lyrics

The Water

(Verse 1)
I've played the game
...and I've been missing, hiding
I've tried to change
...and I've been pushing, striving

I wondered what I had to take
for the hurt and pain to be erased
To know somewhere I have a place
Not afraid to show my face

(Chorus)
But you told me in the water
It's already been done
And everything I wanted
Has been here all along

You told me in the water
That I am truly free
Not from what I do for you
Only what you've done for me

The Water (Refrain)

(Verse 2)
I've made mistakes
...and I've been walking, trying,
I've been ashamed
...and I've been hurting, crying

I wondered why I am so blind
Always covered up my eyes
With the masks I hide behind
Looking good through pretty lies

(Chorus)
But you told me in the water
It's already been done
And everything I wanted
Has been here all along

You told me in the water
That I am truly free
Not from what I do for you
Only what you've done for me

(Bridge)
And I don't have to be naive
I'll still have days that bring me to my knees
But I won't suffer long, knowing that you make it right
Cause I don't have to pay the price

(Chorus)
You told me in the water
It's already been done
And everything I wanted
Has been here all along

You told me in the water
That I am truly free
Not from what I do for you
Only what you've done for me

(Refrain)
The water
Oh, I left it all in the water
I heard your call in the water
Yeah the water
