The Back Story:

I started this song while out on tour in recording at a studio at Fredonia State University of New York.  I was always happy with the verse lyrics but not with the chorus. So the song just stayed in the notebook until the day that I heard  friends were in the middle of a personal tragedy. 

My college friend, a nurse, and her daughter came upon an accident while out driving on a cold winter day.  They stopped to help, called 911 and got out to assess the status of the accident victims.   An EMS  worker came speeding to the "rescue" and hit them both,  knocking them into a stone wall - killing the daughter instantly.  

My friend lay in the start of a coma next to her dead daughter as melting water flowed down over the edges of the stones under them and on to the road and froze again to the road  in a black ice slick. 

She remained in that coma for almost 2 years and when she finally woke, she found that she had broken every bone in her body, legs, arms, ribs,  back, head, jaw has lost many teeth and lost her daughter.  I felt connected as a friend to the family and felt a personal loss like an uncle. 

16 years earlier just when my friend wanted to have children, she found that her husband was gay and conception was a big issue.  I talked to him and somehow managed to convince him to plant his seed anyway, and their beautiful daughter was born of this special love..  She was super smart and her passing was a loss from which no one will ever recover.   

A personal aside, rescue people wake the fuck up. Obey the traffic laws on the way to he station, it is your duty and part of protecting the public safety.

That is what sparked me to finish this song.  Water Falling

II asked Anton Fig, drummer from the Paul Shaffer Band / Late Night with David Letterman to come to my studio to play on the song.   He was happy for the chance to get out of NYC for a while and agreed.   I was concerned that I would not be able to produce, engineer and play on the song all at the same time, so I asked my good friend David Ivory if he would take the reigns for the session with great results.

Debra called up the press and they came out to see us cut the song and later on the International Musicians Magazine did a Cover Story on us.

Anton Fig came back on another session to do the drums on the song Far Below track 08 on the Radiate CD.
 

Title: Water Falling
Words & Music by: Rick Denzien

Looking at my life Well it seemed so unclear
And I find myself - Tangled in my fears
You take me unaware - Sometimes I get surprised
See right through to truth - In your eyes
Ill never forget you
Saw the truth and I wrote it down for you
Bridges crossed never will I never will - forget you

Water fall - pour down over me
Like a drowning man sinking deep in an endless raging sea
And I wanna scream out with everything even my last breath
And so I wrote it down you were my best friend

Faded pictures of Yesterdays they line my shelf
Keep them there in silence - and pity for myself
Somehow you spoke to me - And I, I heard your voice
You Lifted my heavy spirits - Made that choice, I could hear your voice

Water fall - pour down over me
Like a drowning man sinking deep in an endless raging sea

And as a child I try, try to understand
How the grass it grows, everywhere I go
And the mother's love I used to know but now
As a man I just can not see, my blind eyes cant see
I cant see - cant see, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Water fall - pour down over me
Like a drowning man sinking deep in an endless raging sea
And I want to scream out with everything even my last breath
And so I wrote it down you were my best friend

Water Fall Water Fall - the place we used to go
Water Fall Water Fall - the resting place I know
