It is a dance we do in silence, far below this morning sun
You, in your life, me, in mine, we have begun
Here we stand and without speaking, draw the water from the well
And stare beyond the plains, to where the mountains lie so still

But its a long way that I have come
Across the sand to find this peace among your people in the sun
Where the families work the land as they have always done
Oh, its so far the other way, my countrys gone

Across my home has grown the shadow of a cruel and senseless hand
Though in some strong hearts the love and truth remain
And it has taken me this distance and a womans smile to learn
That my heart remains among them and to them, I must return

But its a long way that I have come
Across the sand to find you here among these people in the sun
Where your children will be born, youll watch them as they run
Oh, its so far the other way, my life has gone

If you look for me, Maria, you will find me in the shade
Wide awake or in a dream, its hard to tell
If you come to me, Maria, I will show you what Ive made
Its a picture for Our Lady of the Well
