The Well Song

You can lead a horse to water
But you cannot make it think
That it’s anything but a horse
That’s being lead to drink

You can take a woman to a well
You can ask her why it’s dry
But do not make her cry
No, do not make her cry

If I needed you, would you come to me?
Would you hurt yourself to help me in my need?
If I needed you would you find me
Even if all I wanted to do was hide?

Don’t need to own a watch
To see time fly by
The lines beside your eyes
The new creases in your smile

Oh baby can you tell me
When we missed the boat
The price of love’s worth more than gold
And a free ride home

If I needed you would you bleed for me?
Would you open up your heart to find out where it leads?
If I needed you would you find me
Even if all I wanted to do was hide?

I can wait and I can think
I can wait and think and fast
I can wait until those mountains turn
From rocks into sand

When my time is up
Will we drink from the same cup?
Will we find out about love
When it’s all been given up?
