The Sunwater Diaries – Age Old Question

July 18, 2008 — 6 Comments

Back in 2003 (yeah, most likely that year), I found a group called The Sunwater Diaries… It must’ve been between 2003 and 2004 because I was a fresh student of web stuff, I remember. It’s also because I wrote the group an email a couple of times… I wanted to work with them on a website, and I also wanted to get the lyrics to their song. They had two songs online, and I remember I downloaded it for free on a site that is no longer online (I think it was Vitaminic or something like that) – and then The Sunwater Diaries went *POOF*. E-mails began bouncing, and their sites went down.

You see, The Sunwater Diaries was a Canadian duo… his name’s Derek McKinley (yes, luckily I didn’t lose all emails), and her name’s Beth Henderson. Yes, Henderson… she’s sisters with Meredith Henderson, and that’s how I found them. Problem with that? LOL’

But like Meredith’s website went *POOF* all of a sudden, that’s how The Sunwater Diaries went *POOF* as well~~ Sadly, back in the day, I was really crappy with my files… so I either lost those emails, or I can’t find them in any backup. It is very unlikely that I did a backup on my downloaded Hotmail e-mails… so there you go. Why am I complaining about the deleted e-mails? Well, one of the e-mails that Derek sent contained the lyrics to the song… and since I lost the e-mail, AM just posting what I can understand from the song.

Anyway, thank you Derek for spending time to send me the lyrics… wherever you may be… and Beth too~~ I hope you still are making music. And where is Meredith Henderson?? I demand a website (for Sunwater Diaries as well)!! *hint hint nudge nudge*

Anyway, here are the lyrics… and the mp3~ *Woo!! New MP3 plugin!!*

Solemnly waiting a feeling I can’t quite describe-
Hurdle forwards and backwards,
The soul of my love
Many rich guys and bitch flies
That buzz in our face
Getting worse now.
Enjoy your artificial life.

‘Coz I can make, I can make
I can make
A difference…

Oh, my lady,
I’m a fallen angel,
I’m an age old question.
This old lady cut the bonds that tied me,
Freed the slaves and found me.

Freed the slaves

Oh, my lady,
I’m a fallen angel,
I’m an age old question.
This old lady cut the bonds that tied me,
Freed the slaves and found me.

Be there, be there and I’ll
Be there, be there and I’ll
Be there, be there and I’ll come…

Reaching and scraping
The bottom of the barrel
Of a love. It’s a tough game
We feel shame,
There’s no reason.
When you’re in the streets
I see faces that don’t smile back,
You’re all cute friends.
I love you, and I love myself.

Be there, be there and I’ll come
Be there, be there
Be there, be there and I’ll come
Be there, be there and I’ll
Be there, be there and I’ll come…

‘Coz I can make, I can make
I can make
A difference…
