Howard, Ben - These Waters Lyrics




I saw red and yellow flowers outside over the moors
And brightest sunrise ever to've touched my eyes.

And through it all,
I stood and stumbled, waded through my thoughts and heart
Yeah through it all,
I fooled and fumbled, lost to the poet's frown.
I fought the wolves of patience just to let it lie down.

See these waters they'll pull you up,
Oh if you're bolder than the darkness.
My my, let these songs be an instrument to cut,
Oh spaces 'tween the happiness and the hardness.

Out the door,
The touch of morning, the burning of the frost
Out the door
Strong hands to hold; good friends that I never lost.

And what we found
Down these coves of limestone and cockle shells,
What we found
Down these roads that wander as lost as the heart,
Is a chance to breathe again, a chance for a fresh start.

Oh, no, see these waters they'll pull you up,
Oh, no, if you're bolder than the darkness.
My my let these songs be an instrument to cut here darling,
Oh, spaces between the happiness and the hardness,
Oh my my, spaces between the happiness and the hardness

    " "These Waters"







    I saw red and yellow flowers outside over the moors

    And brightest sunrise ever to've touched my eyes.

    And through it all,

    I stood and stumbled, waded through my thoughts and heart

    Yeah through it all,

    I fooled and fumbled, lost to the poet's frown.

    I fought the wolves of patience just to let it lie down.

    See these waters they'll pull you up,

    Oh if you're bolder than the darkness.

    My my, let these songs be an instrument to cut,

    Oh spaces 'tween the happiness and the hardness.

    Out the door,

    The touch of morning, the burning of the frost

    Out the door

    Strong hands to hold; good friends that I never lost.

    And what we found

    Down these coves of limestone and cockle shells,

    What we found

    Down these roads that wander as lost as the heart,

    Is a chance to breathe again, a chance for a fresh start.

    Oh, no, see these waters they'll pull you up,

    Oh, no, if you're bolder than the darkness.

    My my let these songs be an instrument to cut here darling,

    Oh, spaces between the happiness and the hardness,

    Oh my my, spaces between the happiness and the hardness "

    My King of New England, the spaces have been severed by your serenade..."Solitude is not measured by the miles of space that intervene between a man and his fellow."

    When I’m high and the suns rising, I come to this song for comfort

  9. Nequita Ramirez

    blasphemy if you gave this a thumbs down.

  10. Ben King

    I'm no musician. I'm a lover of music though.
    I have many favorite guitarists over the last 43 years.....Howard is the only one of them that can do what he does.
    Hopefully, he inspires other, younger people to play the way he does, because this type of percussive guitar shouldn't die. It's waaaay too great and should be shared!!!!

    Mick Vernon

    Ben King good
    Man

    JohnPaul Mclaughlin

    He gave me the motivation to learn, all well and good until you try to learn one of his songs.. gheez that’s a challenge! But your right incredible artist! I’ve been to see him every time he has came to Scotland! Even better live

    The Naive

    I've been listening to ben's music for the last five years, just by the time i started playing guitar. Nowadays I've learned to play Only Love and Bones, now i'm going for this one, but it's difficult because the percussion stuff doesn't come along that easy, but i'm motivated so maybe in 1 month more or less i will be able to play this amazing song! For you all, never its too late to start something, life is time and you always have some free time that you can spend on what you really want! Bless for you all

    THAT GUY

    My girlfriend introduced me to him about two years ago, every song he makes is amazing

  21. musicofthe2ndfinest

    Playing one instrument is way to easy. Let's get a whole band out of this guitar! - Ben Howard, musical genius (...but he's much to humble to ever say something like this)

    musicofthe2ndfinest

    I have never seen Beethoven playing percussion, melody and backing at the same time while singing. Doesn't mean that he couldn't have done it.

    Blowpipe

    r u serious?

    Luis Capomasi

    are you seriously comparing him to beethoven?? i really like his music, but no musician alive or dead has even reach beethoven hills

    Mick Vernon

    ArtjomGlad fuckup you don’t know what you’re

  22. OXmysticalgurlOX
