"Still Water" as written by and Daniel Roland Lanois....
Sad eyes, sad eyes
Where're you going with that confidence?
Sad eyes, sad eyes
Where're you going with that confidence?

I'm going to where the boats go by
Caledonia river flow so wide
I'm going to where the boats go by
Caledonia river flow so wide

Still water, laying over
Still water, laying over
Still water, laying over
Caledonia river oh, so wide

Wild eyes in the wilderness
Where're you going with the devil in hand?
Wild eyes in the wilderness
Where're you going with the devil in hand?

I'm going to build the bridges high
For working money, for working money
I'm going to climb the bridges high
Caledonia brother far away

Still water, I'm laying over
Still water, lay my body down over
Still water, laying over
Caledonia river far away

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Sad eyes in the weary night
Have you seen your brother?
Have you seen your brother?
Waiting by the river Grand
Caledonia river oh, so wide

Going to where the rain falls
Look for my brother
Look for my brother
Going to where the rain falls
Caledonia river far away

Still water, laying over
Still water, lay my body down
Still water, laying over
Caledonia river far away

    General CommentDave Matthews sings this song with Tim Reynolds at radio city in new york. It goes straight into don't drink the water. Very cool.

    General CommentThis is probably my favourite song of all time. There's that deep, layered feeling you get in all of Daniel Lanois' songs, unbelievable guitar playing, and lyrics that are more than just beautiful, they show that he understands what he's singing about. I'm from the area mentioned and I love this song, thanks Daniel Lanois.
