Subject: Lyr Req: Fresh Water by Kirsy Mcgee (plus Chords)
From: MikkinNotts

A friend of mine was listening to Folkwaves last Monday and heard Mick Peat play a track by Kirsty Mcgee "Fresh Water" from the album "Two Birds" I was wondering if anybody had the lyrics and chords for this song as she (my friend) was well impressed with it. This is another artist that I missed out on and will be getting the CD very soon.
I hope someone out there can help.
Thanks
Mikk

Here's the refrain, quoted in Rambles: A Cultural Arts Magazine, and checked by me against a sound sample:

The body knows nothing till the soul cries out.
The soul knows nothing till the body burns.
The body knows nothing till the soul cries out.
The soul knows nothing till the body burns.

I had a devil of a time trying to transcribe this—and then I found the lyrics online. That breathy, sexy, Marilyn-Monroe voice is NOT conducive to clear enunciation. Please don't imitate her.

Lyrics copied from http://kirstymcgee.bandcamp.com/track/fresh-water. There is also a playable sound file on that page.


FRESH WATER
As sung by Kirsty McGee on "Two Birds" (2005)

Fresh water, cool on my skin,
Lay me down and wash me clean.
Wash all memory of sin.
Take these arms and fold me in.

Fire, fire, I won't fight.
All I can see is your blistering light,
For my sins I burn tonight.
The body burns quickly but the soul stays alight.

CHORUS: The body knows nothing till the soul cries out.
The soul knows nothing till the body burns.
The body knows nothing till the soul cries out.
The soul knows nothing till the body burns.

What you see is only one half.
The other lies rusting in a box of nails.
Sweet sin leads to a silvery light.
The soul knows nothing till the body burns. CHORUS

Fresh water, cool on my skin,
Can't get no rest from the state that I'm in.
Won't you take me down? Won't you wash me clean?
Wash all memory of sin.

Oh, you stars in the heavens, look down on me.
Gods and you angels, what do you see?
Just a body that burns in a salt-black sea.
Well, that body would be empty if it wasn't for me. CHORUS

Fresh water, cool and clean,
Carry me down to the bottom of the sea.
Won't you quench this fire that's burning me?
The soul knows nothing till the body swims free.

Fresh water, my desire,
Carry me down, my mouth full of fire.
Won't you take me down to your endless sea?
The body knows nothing till the soul swims free. CHORUS TWICE
