Sail Across The Water (LP Version)

Sail Across The Water (LP Version)

Jane Siberry

love is trembling - trembling like the little bird we hold within our hands
love is bending - bending towards the worried brow - here, let me wipe away
your tears
love is kneeling - above the broken body the ever-upturned face
love is missing - all the words are broken, help me, i cannot find my way,
no i can't
i need you love, come on love
will you sail 'cross the water and lay your wisdom down?
and love will you sail 'cross the water and tell us what you found?
and love will you sail 'cross the water and hold us when we drown?
and love will you sail 'cross the water?
is anybody listening...?

love is trembling - trembling like the leaves above the baby's bed
love is streaming - streaming with the tears that we cannot seem to shed
love is frozen - frozen in the figure they just pulled from the subway grate
love is burning - burning with the anger that we all feel, against which we
kneel,
our faces pressed into thhe lap of loneliness, come on love
will you sail 'cross the water and lay your wisdom down?
and love will you sail 'cross the water and tell us what you found?
and love will you sail 'cross the water and hold us when we drown?
and love will you sail 'cross the water?
are we not willing? are we not trying? are we not trusting? are we not
crying?
are we not children? are we not stumbling? are we not wondering? are we not?
sail 'cross the water and lay your wisdom down?
and love will you sail 'cross the water and tell us what you found?
and love will you sail 'cross the water and hold us when we drown?
and love will you sail 'cross the water?
are we not willing? are we not bending? are we not frozen? are we not
trembling?
are we not children? are we not trying? are we not wondering? are we not?
love is trembling
