"The Well" as written by and David Shannon Bazan....
If you could really see
Then you would ask of me

She knew the well was far too deep
For him to wet his lips
But something told her that he spoke
Of so much more than all of this

When he spoke she wanted to believe
The things he said
But who could this man be
That she might never thirst again

Her heart raced
Could he be the one
We've waited for
The one we've waited for

    General CommentJust read John chapter 4.

    v. 10- Jesus answered her "If you knew the girft of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you the living water."

    v. 13- "Everyone who drinks this water will be thristy again, but whoever drinks the water i give him will will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring os water welling up to eternal life."

    yeah you get the idea.
