Ricardo - Pathless Land
Spirits Dry    © 1981 RFRussell

You look so down and broken, so sad and tired
And every word that's spoken seems so uninspired
Now your eyes are wide and sleepless
There are storm clouds in your head
Your life looks like an ocean
When you're standing at the edge
    You live, I live, we live all together
    Let's go down to the river
    And wash the spirits dry

I once knew a sailor who found a tiny island
There beside the water he found his silence
And I remember only that it was a long long ways from here
But once you left the mainland it was worth every tear
    You live, I live, we live all together
    Let's go down to the river
    And wash the spirits dry

Now it's shining all around us, all in black and white
Nothing to astound us, just everything in sight
It's just an island in the ocean with the sun up shining bright
You've got to hold your eyes open sometimes
But it's well worth the sight
    As you laugh, I laugh, we laugh all together
    Go down to the river
    And wash the spirits dry
    Lift the spirits high
Free the spirits fly
