lyrics

river, where will I be
when the ashes are scattered and gone?
forever the music and the mystery
that splashes in water moves on

river, in thy melody
a voice is laughing and crying
for all I have been and all I will be
in the course of living and dying

in this moment
the current is flowing fast
but it holds on to nothing
as it’s going past

when I reach my limit with travels infinite
the empty places to fill
I slow down a minute and look at what’s in it
‘til everything seems to stand still

river, in my memory
I drift in the shimmering sun
deliver me please from my miseries
when all of my dreaming is done

river, is it my destiny
to journey back where i’ve begun
through the geography of my heart to the sea
where everything flows into one?

in this moment
the future hurtles toward the past
to vanish and return
going nowhere fast

when I reach my limit with travels infinite
the empty places to fill
I slow down a minute and look at what’s in it
‘til everything seems to stand still
