Like a Child

from by Waterwitch

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Order the new Waterwitch CD "The Light Inside You" with cover art by Adam Wolpert. The first hundred ordered will receive one signed and numbered copy AND a second CD to give to a friend. Read below for other perks and options, like a personalized song for donations of $100 or more. Deeply grateful for all orders and donations above and beyond.

    All CD orders will receive:

    A signed and numbered CD PLUS another one for a friend. Your CD will be numbered in the order purchased, and signed by Brian and me. The second one is to give away to a friend, spread the Waterwitch love! $20 for both.

    A digital version of the album will be yours to listen to while you wait for the CD in the mail. Immediate gratification! This version includes lyrics, liner notes for the album and each song, and cool art that goes with each song too, much of it made by our friends. This is all on Bandcamp!

    A hand-written note of eternal gratitude for being a crucial and beautiful part of our journey making art.

    If you can and wish to, you can donate any amount over $20. Like most artists these days, we need some collaboration with fans to do our work. It’s a wonderful way to keep the reciprocity and the art flowing. We are grateful for any help funding this project!

    Be a Waterwitch Patron! Anyone who donates $100 or more will get Grand Canyon-deep gratitude AND a personalized short song that you help me write. This can be a healing song, a visioning a goal song, or a song about your dog, Snugga-muffin. Or I can also just record one of your favorite songs and tell you in detail all the things I dig about you! (I will probably do that anyway.)

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Light Inside You via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

I also call this the Frozen Shoulder song. I wrote it when I had a frozen shoulder so could hardly play, envisioning the day when my arm would be free again. Also an attempt to free the emotional pain that can get trapped in the body.

Letting go
Of the fear and the pain
Pulling up by the roots
the grief and the rage
Feelin’ it move
Feelin’ it change
I dance in the golden light
Like a child again

Letting go
Of the stories and blame
Destroying the walls
Of doubt and shame
Feelin’ it move
Feelin’ it change
I dance in the golden light
Like a child again

Walking by myself
With you so nearby
Sometimes we touch

Stones beneath our soles
Looking overhead
Grapes on the vine

Letting go
To the love and the light
Listening to the secrets of the night
Feelin’ it move
Feelin’ it change
I dance in the golden light
Like a child again
