I Wandered by a Brookside
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


I wandered by a brook side
I wandered by a mill
I could not hear the water
The murmuring it was still

Not a sound of any grasshopper
Nor the chirp of any bird
But the beating of my own heart
Was the only sound I heard
The beating of my own heart
Was the only sound I heard
Then silent tears fast flowing
When someone stood beside

A hand upon my shoulder
I knew the touch was kind
He drew me near and nearer
We neither spoke one word

But the beating of our own two hearts
Was the only sound I heard
The beating of our own two hearts
Was the only sound I heard

I wandered by a brookside
I wandered by a mill
I could not hear the water
The murmuring it was still
Not a sound of any grasshopper
Nor the chirp of any bird
But the beating of my own heart
Was the only sound I heard

The beating of my own heart
Was the only sound I heard

Then silent tears fast flowing
When someone stood beside
A hand upon my shoulder
I knew the touch was kind
He drew me near and nearer
We neither spoke one word
But the beating of our own two hearts
Was the only sound I heard

The beating of our own two hearts
Was the only sound I heard

The greatest musician ever. I just can’t ever get enough of her beautiful breathing. Thank you Eva😘

bontchin

Such a wonderful voice. Can't stop listening to her. So sad that fame really came after her passing!

Rachel Lisette

Every Eva Cassidy song soothes the soul 💓🥰

Franca Abba

My eyes are always crying at this Gods voiced angel.

Steve Kerley

One of the most amazing things about this is there are only 39K views of this Absolute Masterpiece - What precise voice inflection and beautiful music

Ben Eastwood

Gorgeous. What a voice! Impossibly beautiful Eva.

Niki And Janie

Ben Eastwood and her playing as well. So good. It’s hard for me to listen to Tall Trees in Georgia....Tennessee Waltz. Just thing of them makes me cry. I hope she was as peace. I thought I’d heard otherwise; going to research that. God....

As evidenced in the comments, Eva’s immense talent evokes a poetic side in many of us who long to convey our admiration in return, but I always fail miserably trying to express in words the depth she reaches into my soul. I guess, only my blissful tears and a healing heart can reveal the true extent.
