Lyrics: 

Lyrics: by Elizabeth Petty

C
rivers and rapids
running...passing...
cascades and waterfalls
flowing...splashing...
whirlpools and rainbows
building... growing...
oh.. longing and loving
soaring.... glowing

V1
love is running
passing throughout
my body
reaching me
touching you...
ooo...ooo
touching... you

love is flowing
splashing within
my body
swelling in
sweeping through
ooo..ooo
sweeping through

C
rivers and rapids
running...passing...
cascades and waterfalls
flowing...splashing...
whirlpools and rainbows
building... growing...
oh.. longing and loving
soaring.... glowing

V2
love is building
growing throughout
my body
pulling me
holding you
ooo...ooo
holding you...

love is soaring
glowing within
my body
bursting in
exploding through
ooo...ooo
exploding through

B
running running
passing...
flowing flowing
splashing...
building building
growing....
soaring....soaring
glowing .......

Looking at the lyrics...a lot of visual in the chorus...very nice. v1 I can sum up with ooo...ooo. v2...yep, more of the sensual imagery. Not too much though and leave the reader and listeners mind open for interpretation. More goodies in the bridge and splashing jump out at me. Make me think of the bathtub. Nice job on the lyrics! I'm ready for the audio now...hold. guitar chops...vocals spoken word...guitar noodle...love is running...touching you...interesting take on this Bill...love is flowing...splashing within my body...good vocals...very moody...I like that noodling on the guitar too...flowing...splashing...flange guitar now...lol...vocals again now...growing...soaring...guitar...and out. Wow, this is not what I expected but certainly not disappointed. I think it is an amazing performance. The lyrics are very strong as well. Nice collab...I like it. Quite unique.

I like the changing intensity that evokes a rambling river with rapids and falls and lazy bits too. The end it particularly nice. I think that your lyrics did work. I read them before the liner notes and though "these waters are pretty steamy." So there you are.

They should use these lyrics in a writing class as an example of getting physical action across through the use of short, sharp active phrases. Never heard lovemaking described so strongly and poetically. Bill, the guitar here is gorgeous, and understated delivery works a treat. Good one!
