"Waterfall" as written by Judee Sill...
I've heard the waterfall roaring again
Since I've been lovin' you
With my poor heart in my throat I begin
Living a dream come true
Tumblin' down comes the waters
Tickling every stone
On the edge trembling, I totter
My fate unknown
But my fear has flown

Cause' your love came to lead me home
Waterfall song in my head
Prasin' its thunderous swords
Just as my heart praises you and me here
True love's the wondrous force
Tumblin' down comes the waters
Tickling every stone
Rumbling gravity falters
Since dawn has shown
How nice overthrown
And love comes to lead us home
From a small trickle it grows
Watching a waiting front
Til its momentum will carry the flow
Over the rushing falls
Tumbling down comes the waters
Tickling every stone
Pass the sun's rays growin' hotter
The cascades drones
Through glistening falls
Like love comes to lead us home

    General Commentthank you thank you thank you! i've been looking for these lyrics for over a month! i heard the daniel rossen cover & i couldn't make out some of the words for sure. this is an amazing song & i personally think, daniel reinvigorated the song with new life, in a great tribute to judee.

    General CommentI've read a few versions and I'm pretty sure this isn't right. E.g.: 'How nice overthrown' should be 'How night's overthrown', (it's unlikely that any songwriter would use the word 'nice' in their writing). 'Swords' should also be 'Source', 'Watching a wait in front': 'Watching I wait enthralled' and 'Through glistening falls': 'Through glistening foam'.
