Natalie Merchant: Leave Your Sleep

Almost 10 years since her last album, Natalie Merchant will be releasing a new album, Leave Your Sleep, in a week and I am very excited! She spent four years with 10,000 Maniacs, but I am much more familiar with her music as a solo artist. Natalie Merchant has a natural, sultry voice and I enjoy all of her songs, but Tigerlily was my favorite album. I used to play it over and over again, I found it moving and beautiful.

Where I Go is one of the few songs that I know all the lyrics. In my mind I feel like I am sitting on the riverside watching all my troubles and worries flow away.

Climbing under
a barbed wire fence
by the railroad ties

climbing over
the old stone wall
I am bound for the riverside

well I go to the river
to soothe my mind
ponder over
the crazy days of my life
just sit and watch the river flow

find a place
on the riverbank
where the green rushes grow
see the wind
in the willow tree
in the branches hanging low

well I go to the river
to soothe my mind
to ponder over
the crazy days of my life
watch the river flow
ease my mind and my soul
where I go

well I will go to the river
from time to time
wander over
these crazy days in my mind
watch the river flow
where the willow branches grow
by the cool rolling waters
moving gracefully and slow

child it’s lovely
let the river take it all away
the mad pace, the hurry
the troubles, the worries
just the river take them all away
flow away
