Across the Water – copyright © Chris MacLean 2000 (SOCAN)

Across the water it is night
I reach into the darkness with my light
If I could swim across this, well I just might
Never come back
Funny how I met you
And how much I like the way you move through your life
And all the things you like to do
I like ‘em too

Last night I dreamt you were holding me
And we rode the waves
Now I wish that you loved me
And you would always stay

An ice storm hit this town
Trees are falling, all the lines went down
I couldn’t get through to you, if I tried
Even if there were no ocean between you and I
Frozen armour weighs down all my limbs
I hold my breath and wait for a good warm wind
To blow this ice and this sadness to the dawn
So I can move along


There’s so much in life we just survive
You’d barely recognize that we’re alive
Well, I’ve been working real hard cuz I want more
And I feel ready for this, like I haven’t felt before
