Description
I never know what to say in these descriptions. This is probably already painfully obvious, but I'm using "still water" here as a reference to a calming presence; a lover, a friend, someone who doesn't bring the drama, an ode to the drama-less. I actually hear a faint alto sax in here, or a deep flute. Do comment if it strikes some chord, and thanks for the listen :)

Lyrics
Still water, like joy,
Spills over my heart
And you're walking, like a boy,
But I don't mind, I don't mind.

I stay over, your house
You bring water, for my heart.
The day is longer,
And we like it,
We buy over, we buy over.

Still water, like joy, spills over, my heart
You're walking, just like the boy you are,
And I don't mind, and I like it
I don't mind, and I like it.

Still water, spills over
Still water, spills over.
Over my heart, over my heart,
Over and over my heart, over my heart.

Still water...
Still water...

Chord struck
Ive been listening to your stuff as they come out, this is (for me) the one that you do it all right...your most simple yet most complete package if you will. I really like the lyrics and melody, great song mang!

Thanks mang!
For the awesome comment, I always appreciate simple because that's where I'm most comfortable, I'd love to learn more layering and complex producing of course, but for now I just sing and that's plenty. Thanks again!

Nice harmonies
Simple, elegant, with nice vocal harmonies! There is one line in the third verse where the harmony track comes in before the melody--so much before that it sounds kinda wrong to me. I'm OK with a little looseness, but I would recommend tightening up that spot just a little. Overall, very nice though--enjoyed it!

Very Cool song
I can prefer simple sometimes over complex there can be to much going on in a song that takes away from it. This is a nice and enjoyable listen. Thanks for sharing.

great
such a fragile sound to this - I don't want to listen to hard in case it breaks! It's fantastic in its purity. Great voice. A minor nit pick is the chorus like effect on the guitar. A pure acoustic sound would be my choice.
Thanks for posting
best wishes
Steve.
