Heading to the Water by Martin Vogwell (2020) I never was much good at staying in one place There's always so much temptation to see another nation So I'm packing up my bags Shutting my front door I'm on my way My oldest friend said to me There must be more to life than this So he proved it by moving so far away He met a girl, got married Made a new life in a new world So I'm heading to the water Leaving the land behind Going with the flow and living in the wild I'll see you again when the sky turns grey But for now I'm just drifting Now I'm just drifting away If I had a chance to look back At moments of reflection I hope the land didn't mind My moments of rejection So I'm not going back The water's in my blood I'm here to stay And I might be new to this life But I've seen so much already From the rivers and the valleys To the stream in the sky I'm lifted from the Weaver I'm carrying on come what may So I'm heading to the water Leaving the land behind Going with the flow and living in the wilds I'll see you again when the sky turns grey But for now I'm just drifting Now I'm just drifting away (Repeat) Martin Vogwell is a member of the folk-rock band Folklaw who were supposed to be playing at Cropedy Festival in 2020. The Covid pandemic caused the festival to be cancelled but Martin got fairly close with this performance of his song about moving to live on the water which was filmed on the South Oxford Canal.
