"Sand And Water" as written by and Beth Nielsen Chapman....
All alone, I didn't like the feeling
All alone, I sat and cried
All alone, I had to find some meaning
In the center of the pain I felt inside

All alone, I came into the world
All alone, I will someday die
Solid stone is just sand and water, baby
Sand and water, and a million years gone by

I will see you in the light of a thousand suns
I will hear you in the sound of the waves
I will know you when I come, as we all will come,
Through the doors, beyond the grave

All alone, I heal this heart of sorrow
All alone, I raise this child
Flesh and bone, he's just
Bursting towards tomorrow
And his laughter fills my world, and wears your smile

All alone, I came into the world
All alone, I will someday die
Solid stone is just sand and water, baby
Sand and water, and a million years gone by

    General CommentI love this song. I heard it first on Charmed, and it made me cry when I heard it.

    It's obviously about the death of a loved one and bringing up the child on your own. About going on, and accepting that you come into the world alone and she will leave it alone too.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, it is so beautiful, yet sad. I believe I heard that this song was about her husbands passing from lymphoma and how she felt.
