We're all made of water.
Water and stardust and dirt and dreams.
Everything is connected.
Drink deeply and enjoy!
May we never be thirsty.

lyrics

Ice makes for stillness, not weakness.
I’ll rise and I’ll dance with the spring,
dauntless creator of canyons.
Look to the water for change.
Look to the water for change
Look to the water for change.

I’ll sweep down to comfort your burning.
I’ll dance up the dust of the drought.
I’m here in the hum of your heartbeat.
I’m there in the river’s wild route.
I’m here in the hum of your heartbeat.
I’m there in the river’s wild route.

O, may we never be thirsty,
trickle and bayou and stream,
ocean, creator, destroyer,
warm in the womb where we dream!

The flowers all open in glory
the moment that I come along
to wake up the heart of the desert
and nourish the fields with my song.
I’ll wake up the heart of the desert
and nourish the fields with my song.

Depth makes for stillness and wonder.
I rise and I rage with the storm.
Remember we’re all made of water,
meant to rise and to fall and transform.
Remember we’re all made of water,
We rise and we fall and transform.
We rise and we fall and transform
We rise and we fall and transform.
We rise and we fall and transform.
and we look to the water.
Look to the water
Look to the water
Look to the water

about

S. J. Tucker Perry, Arkansas

“Without our songs and stories, we are nothing.” S. J. Tucker has been captain of her own music career since 2004, when she left the workaday world behind to sing songs and change lives. Tucker is the voice of lore at the campfire and the sharp laughter of modern myth. With one hand anchored in her art and the other held out to us, she is songs and stories, community and wit. ... more
