Ripple In The Water

from What Kind Of Brother

Written: 07/1998 at Puget Sound Guitar Workshop.  Many thanks to Bob Franke, mentor and friend, for your support and faith.  Dedicated to the living memory of Harvey Jackins.

Well hello, my old friend
Don't you know it sure is good to see you again
Well hello, is there room up there
Inside your mind for me anywhere

While there's a ripple in the water
From a stone that someone threw
So tell me why it's just so damn hard to see
That there's a sunrise hanging over me

Well hello, how you doing there
Saw you looking sad, did someone take your share?
Well hello, through you might like to know
We all feel this way when the wind inside us blows

While there's a ripple in the water
From a stone that someone threw
So tell me why it's just so damn hard to see
That there's a sunrise hanging over me

Watching and waiting, contemplating
And hoping faithfully
Bewilderment, enlightenment
Won't you hold me carefully

Well hello, yes I understand
That you feel something's at an end
Well hello, I'm right here by your side
And you can tell me all of the things you've lost inside

While there's a ripple in the water
From a stone that someone threw
So tell me why it's just so damn hard to see
That there's a sunrise hanging over me

Well hello, I think you're doing fine
And I sure am glad that I could sit with you this time

While there's a ripple in the water
From a stone that someone threw
So tell me why it's just so damn hard to see
That there's a sunrise hanging over me

Watching and waiting, contemplating
And hoping faithfully
Bewilderment, enlightenment
Won't you hold me carefully
