Drink From the Well

Music and lyrics by Claudia Anderson

In the dream he was riding on horseback
Travelling through tempests of snow in the night
His father rode past him without looking back
Carrying a horn with a fire inside
He silently rode through the dark and was waiting
To join him at their final home

When a new song is stirring
You drink from the well
It comes with a roar and a rush and a swell
Go home to the water
Don’t leave me behind
Take me home take me home
Take me home
Take me home

In the dream she sat high on her mountain
Blinking through tears of her loss and regret
Her mother appeared flying low in the sky
On the back of an eagle she flew
The cry of the eagle, a touch on her neck
She knew was a sign to let go

When a new song is stirring
You drink from the well
It comes with a roar and a rush and a swell
Go home to the water
Don’t leave me behind
Take me home take me home
Take me home
Take me home

How do you paint when there’s nothing before you
Evoke from the sea or the leaves of a tree
In the buzz of the locusts and chips of the sparrows
In the cry of a baby reveal harmony

When a new song is stirring
You drink from the well
It comes with a roar and a rush and a swell
Go home to the water
Don’t leave me behind
Take me home take me home
Take me home
Take me home
