"Water May Walk" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Water may walk
Daughter may walk
Mother may walk
Father may walk

Moth fell asleep in a perfect fire
Water in hands
Mother in hands
Brother in hands
Held in the hands

Of one million bending bones
I know it's name
You know it's name
Never above
Never above

One thousand mending moans
A fire inside
A silver inside
The hollow inside
The echo inside

The red setting sun inside
The earth has it's eyes
The sea has eyes too
Brown mother eyes
Blue mother blue

And eyes are the stems of space
Mother may grow
Daughter may grow
Father may grow
And swallow the seed

Of trees in the chest of my mind
I've got some to give
I'd like to give some
Love will still live
When our time is done
Death be light, be light

    General CommentI think the song is almost like a continuation of "Sister" because it just seems to be about family and the line "I've got some to give, I'd like to give some" could be interpreted that he's ready to have his own family...

    just my two cents
