I love this song by Lacy J Dalton. I find it to be quite inspiring. I would encourage all to find her version, or at least read these lyrics. This is not the Kathy Mattea song of the same name.

There've been times in my life
When I've felt out of touch and half-crazy
Lost in a crowd with lovers and friends by my side

There's a numbness I've known,
all alone in some shimmering city
With bright lights around me
and nothing but shadows inside

There've been desperate times
when my heart was so dry
That I felt like my life was a curse
I was standin' knee deep in the river and dyin' of thirst

There are months at a time
When no reason nor rhyme can sustain me
When nothin' makes sense
and everything turns upside-down

There are nights when I fight
to keep dreamin' from driving me crazy
And I shut off my mind
just to keep it from spinnin' around

But it's down in that quiet in that stillness I find
The sweet water for which I've longed searched
While standin' knee deep in the river and dyin' of thirst

So if you're having times
When you feel out of touch and half-crazy
Lost in a crowd with lovers and friends by your side

If the game's getting old,
and you're cold and exhausted and maybe
You'd just like to cop-out and crumble,
or lay down and die

If you come to a time when you need to decide
Friend, you might want to ask yourself first
Am I standin' knee deep in the river and dyin' of thirst?

'Cause there's a great river runs
from the heart of the sun
Through the soul of the whole universe
From the limitless light that brings order and might
To the substance of Heaven and Earth

And it's down in that quiet, in that stillness inside
There's a well we don't seek 'til we hurt
From standin' knee deep in the river and dyin' of thirst

Yes, down in that quiet, in that stillness inside
Are sweet waters to heal this whole Earth
That is standin' knee deep in the river and dyin' of thirst
