Lyrics

Oasis
Words & Music Joe Rathburn

Cool clear waterfall
Runnin’ down a rock wall
To a pool below
There I sit upon the grass
Letting my cares simply pass away
Neath a shady palm
Everything is so calm
All around me now
It’s this vision that I have
Like a tonic and a salve
To my jangled nerves
It’s my peace preserve

Somewhere – across the barren land
Across the burnin’ sand
There’s an oasis
Sometime – what I need to find
Just to ease my mind
Is an oasis

In the world at large
Seems like no one’s in charge
Bedlam everywhere
But it’s really not the case
There’s a quiet, peaceful place inside of me
It’s in all of us
When we fight and we fuss
We forget it’s there
If we all just tried
to bring out that place inside
the dark clouds above
would rain down love

Somewhere – across the barren land
Across the burnin’ sand
There’s an oasis
Someday – What I hope and pray
Is we find our way
to the Oasis

through many millennia
we wandered in search of a paradise
most everyone looked around, found some ground,
settled down, built a town said
“this looks nice”
Don’t you think it’s a doggone crime
after all this time that we haven’t found peace yet
Maybe the path we’re on’s a dead end friend
And we’ve gone about as far as we can get
Yet – what I see on the horizon in front of me
is not a mirage,
it’s a place that we all wanna be
A place of love, and of and pastures of plenty
so fill your cup, drink it up

Somewhere – across the barren land
Across the burnin’ sand
There’s an oasis
Sometime – what I know we’ll find
In our common mind
Is an Oasis
Somewhere – across the barren land
Across the burnin’ sand
There’s an oasis
Someday – we’ll be there to stay
When we find our way
to the Oasis
