Where is the Watershed?
c 2014 words and music by JoAnne Spies

Whe e e e ere’s the watershed?
Whe e e e ere’s the watershed?

I was standin’ by the riverside
Lost in my pride
Never knowin’ in my heart or head
I am water, by water am led
Hold me, tumblin’ down
Find me underground
Magic, simple sound
I’m water, missin’ and found

Where’s the watershed?
Where’s the watershed?

Where is the watershed/
Does it shimmy, like a waterbed?
Is it heavy, like a ton of lead?
Up, down, overhead
Where’s the watershed?

Let the spirit of earth and sky
Keep me, when I fly
Carry me to the sea
I am water, I am free

Where’s the watershed?
Where’s the watershed?

Drainin’ rainin’ underground
Snowin’ seepin’ creepin’ down
Can you catch it?
Make a water sound
Can you see it?
It’s all around
Can you feel it?
Sky to the ground
Where is the watershed?

The world needs your tears
Not just your petty fears
The world needs your tears

Repeat

Landlocked, full of fear
Sound your torrent that I may hear
Where I’m stubborn let me flow
Where I'm ignorant let me know
Where is the watershed?
Does it shimmy, like a waterbed?
Is it heavy, like a ton of lead?
Up, down, overhead
Where’s the watershed?

Twelve thousand years of tears are standing in my throat
A hundred million fears are woven in my coat
Illusion and memory are all the same
Can you tell me, what is my name
Beyond the mountains I move along
My voice is hidden then my voice is strong
After so much silence and separation
Will you praise my beauty, my reparation?

Where is the Watershed?
The world needs your tears
Where is the watershed?
