"The Woman By The Well" as written by and Blasko/cranny....
Lately I find that you know me
Better than I know myself,
Like a woman who's lost herself
By the water's edge,
Her reflection was taken by the tide,

I just want you around,
I want you around,

Seconds and hours pass slowly
I move them all by myself,
I can feel that I'm aging,
My hair is turning black,
There's a rhythm behind it
That you can't know,

Still, I want you around,
'Cause I'm more lost than found,

Shine a light on my misery,
Wake the child from her sleep,
Wipe the eyes of the dewy morning,
The waters so deep.

    General Commenti see this song as about what it's like to keep a secret to yourself,

    incredibly written and composed.

    General Commentdoes anyone else think it is likely to be "You" seeing as the title alludes to the biblical story of the woman by the well? in that story apparently a woman, a whore, was approached by Jesus while she was drawing water from a well, and he knew all her secrets and troubles and confronted her openly about them all right there at the well...it dumbfounded as well as amazed her and inspired her to believe in him. just a thought.

    I think, upon months of listens, that this is actually about a woman who has been through so many troubles in her life that she barely recognizes herself. She knows that she's alive through the help of G.d -- or, I suppose, whoever, whatever she believes in-- and that He's made all this happen to her for some reason or another...she restates her desire for simply His presence, and in having so, His help. at first she had been hesitant to believe in Him, as the second verse states of her loneliness and how He/"You can't know" all her secrets...but the first verse more or less argues with this, telling herself that it's actually the truth, that He knows...and now she just wants Him there with her.
