WATERSTRIDER Oakland, California

Take the train from San Francisco to Oakland. Walk through the parks and by the lake, the places where the turbulence of city life blurs into the serenity of redwood groves and peaceful birdsong. There you will find Waterstrider. Woven through with pop sensibilities, their songs are imbued with a sense of environment, with a weight and a presence that ushers you into the little worlds they create. ... more

Track Name: Water & Stone
We walked a long way through the winter of my grief
Your river heart was enough for me
You warm love has brought the leaves to my trees
Your sunshine eyes watch the skies inside me

We are water and stone
Wind-fed fire
We are water and stone
Never far from home

Footprints in the snow wind the way to my home
Whispered words to guide me all on my own
O, how I would love just to hold
once more your cold, cold bones

I'm here waiting where did you go?
Your poor soul vanished into the snow
Now I know what life I will lead
Your warm love has planted it's seed
Track Name: Feathertips
Hold your hands out, for me now
Catching raindrops in your mouth
Broken wings are careening down
toward the ground

We will breathe in together
Rub our skin into leather
Fingertips will be feathers
Fly away now and forever

Risen from the heather
Fly below the weather

Love is real, you don't have to try
Unlike Icarus, you'll never fall from the sky
Track Name: Edge of the Light (Live)
Faltering whispers
keep me awake
They give a gift to the humble:
the bite of the snake

Money won't carry me home

The blood of the peaceful
feeds corruption and greed
They take what they want
we don't get what we need

Money won't carry me home

Mountains are moving
Build a new city out of old sand
This is our land
bring another witness to the stand

Gather up family
at the edge of the light
We give them our love
but they want a fight

Money won't carry me home

Mountains are moving
Build a new city out of old sand
This is our land
bring another witness to the stand
