LYRICS
Watching light through water
I want to bend the way it bends
You slice like a knife through the surface
But what a thrill to see it mend
With no scar, no memory
I’m envious
Why pretend I’m not

Wading in up to the ankles
The cold speaks straight to my bones
Whole body and soul hesitation
I am a coward turned to stone
Stay there for centuries
So all of history knows about it

But hey hey
We made it to the longest day
And the sun, the wind the earth
Are wearing me away

The shame!
I wish that I was brave enough to dive in
But I never have been and never will be
I’m coming in hot then freezing completely
The shame!
I wish that I could say what I’ve been thinking
But I never have done and never will do
Still only knees deep
I’ll never be brave like you

Lighten up like a candle
I’m as likely to go out
You can sigh from the bottom of your lungs
Until the house gets blown down
One step, then two, then three
‘Til I’ve forgotten how to count them

But hey hey
We made it to the longest day
And the river’s ready current
Can carry me away

The shame!
I wish that I was brave enough to dive in
But I never have been and never will be
I’m coming in hot then freezing completely
The shame!
I wish that I could say what I’ve been thinking
But I never have done and never will do
Still only knees deep
I’ll never be brave like you

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
