Sand and Water by Beth Nielson Chapman

I love this song and the entire album, Sand and Water.  I just discovered she is coming to our town in October so I need to start saving my pennies so I can buy a ticket!

Beth tragically lost her husband to cancer in August 1994 and she wrote this song, along with the others on this album, to deal with the pain of losing him.  If you’ve lost someone dear to you, I hope this song helps.

All alone, I didn’t like the feeling
All alone, I sat and cried
All alone, I had to find some meaning
In the center of the pain I felt inside

All alone, I came into the world
All alone, I will someday die
Solid stone is just sand and water, baby
Sand and water, and a million years gone by

I will see you in the light of a thousand suns
I will hear you in the sound of the waves
I will know you when I come, as we all will come,
Through the doors, beyond the grave

All alone, I heal this heart of sorrow
All alone, I raise this child
Flesh and bone, he’s just
Bursting towards tomorrow
And his laughter fills my world, and wears your smile

All alone, I came into the world
All alone, I will someday die
Solid stone is just sand and water, baby
Sand and water, and a million years gone by…
