Rock Me on the Water
Jackson Browne - Jackson Browne [1972]

Buy the CD at Amazon.com

Oh, people, look around you,
The signs are everywhere
You've left it for somebody other than you,
To be the one to care
You're lost inside your houses,
There's no time to find you now
While your walls are burning and your towers are turning,
I'm going to leave you here and try to get down to the sea somehow

The road is filled with homeless souls,
Every woman, child and man
Who have no idea where they will go,
But they'll help you if they can
But everyone must have some thought,
That's going to pull them through somehow
While the fires are raging hotter and hotter,
But the sisters of the sun are going to rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water,
Sister, will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water,
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Oh, people, look among you,
It's there your hope must lie
There's a sea bird above you,
Gliding in one place like Jesus in the sky
We all must do the best we can,
And then hang on to that gospel plow
When my life is over, I'm going to stand before the father,
But the sisters of the sun are going to rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water,
Sister, will you soothe my fevered brow
Rock me on the water,
Maybe I'll remember, maybe I'll remember how

Rock me on the water,
The wind is with me now
So, rock me on the water,
I'll get down to the sea somehow
