Song: Woman at the Well

.

.
She saw him there, there was no doubt

about the knowing look in his eye,
she’d come to draw water 
because her bucket was dry

He asked her then for a taste
but she turned the question away
She said, You know we’re different.
He said, That’s really ok

And if you only knew who was talking to you
and what your father provides,
you’d turn to me for a drink of this water
that’s gonna fill up every valley
and flood the desert inside

But, she said, you’ve no bucket
and this well is so deep
He said, No, the water I give you
will wake the dead from their sleep

Now why don’t you go get your husband
and bring him back here with you
She said, I really don’t have one
He said, we both know that’s true

Though you’ve had many lovers
you’ve never been true to one
Then she fell back in wonder,
how he could know what she’d done

And if you only knew who was talking to you
and what your father provides,
you’d turn to me for a drink of this water
that’s gonna fill up every valley
and flood the desert inside

Then she ran to the city
and told the loneliest there
there’s someone who knows me
and yet he still cares

And if we only knew who was asking us to
believe that there’s nowhere to hide
we’d turn to me for a drink of that water
that’s gonna fill up every valley
and flood the desert inside

Yeah, if we only knew who was asking us to
believe that there’s nowhere to hide
we’d turn to me for a drink of that water
that’s gonna fill up every valley
and flood the desert inside
