only water lyrics – brandon heath

“only water”

there’s a shadow coming
as the sky goes black
it’s a stubborn rain
on a nebraska plain

there’s a farmer standing
on a thirsty ground
he holds his breath
this is life or death
it’s only water

and it washes over me
like a single river stone
changes everything
but has no power on its own
it’s only water

there’s a winding canyon
where a mountain stood
miles of earth and clay
carried far away

but there’s something holy
in these cathedral walls
they took a lot of years
and a lot of tears
it’s only water

and it washes over me
like a single river stone
changes everything
but has no power on its own
it’s only water

there once was a wedding
all the wine was gone
they said he’s just a man
that’s where it all began
it was only water

and it washes over me
like a single river stone
changes everything
but has no power on its own

it washes over me
like a single river stone
changes everything
but has no power on its own, on its own
it’s only water
